Dengeling is a new method for mechanical surface treatment of metallic parts to enhance fatigue properties. The treatment produces consecutive lines of indents by a spherical indenter, resulting in compressive residual stresses in a surface layer. This paper investigated residual stresses, surface roughness and near surface deformation, in specimens of AA 7050 T7451 after different dengeling treatments. The effect of indent overlap (0%, 25% and 50%) and indenter size (∅3 and ∅8 mm) were studied. X-Ray diffraction measurements revealed that plastic deformation and compressive residual stresses were generated in a surface layer of about 1 mm by treatments using the ∅3 mm indenter and about 1.2 mm by treatment using the ∅8 mm indenter. Anisotropic residual stress fields were observed with higher compressive residual stresses (-360 MPa for 50% indent overlap, independent of indenter size) perpendicular to indent lines and lower (max -270 MPa for all the treatments) parallel to indent lines. Increasing the overlap between indents gave higher subsurface compressive residual stresses only in the transverse direction of indent lines. It also reduced the surface roughness. Best surface finish (Ra below 1 μm) was obtained when using the ∅8 mm indenter and 50% indent overlap.
