In science:

Variable restitution coefficients bring the simulation closer to the general observation and allows the investigation of peening regimes with changing shot density.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
Therefore, many engineering techniques involve surface treatment to allow either surface hardening (by e.g. nitriding or vapor deposition) or fatigue life improvement through laser shock peening or shot peening.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
Here, a piezoelectric generator produces the vibration of a sonotrode that pro jects upon contact steel shot in a chamber closed by a cover which is the sample to be peened.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
Several parameters can also be changed, allowing one to control of the overall shot velocity and thus the shot peening intensity.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
Possible tuning parameters for optimizing the peening process include the shot diameter, the height of the chamber, the amplitude and/or the frequency of the sonotrode.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
If the performance of this process is closely related to the appropriate choice of parameters, it becomes necessary to understand how the peening intensity or the peening distribution on a given sample is affected by changes of mechanical or electrical characteristics of the system.
Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
In particular, systems of vibro-fluidized glass beads in an cylinder has some similarities with the device used for the shot peening [8; 9].

Granular gases in mechanical engineering: on the origin of heterogeneous ultrasonic shot peening
Simulations on inelastic hard sphere models using constant restitution coefficients clearly show that the inelasticity of the side-wall collisions plays a key role in the impact profile of the bottom and the top walls of a peening chamber.
