Inconel is used in jet engines or nuclear reactors because of its excellent heat resistance and tensile strength. Artificial changes in the material's surface in order to delay degradation causes the equipment to become obsolescent. Shot Peening is an effective way for a material to withstand the stress generated by a vibration of a strong load, and the fatigue limit for a compressive residual stress applied to the material's surface is increased by spraying the surface with shot balls at a high speed. Univesally, conventional X-ray diffraction (XRD) is used to measure the residual stress in the material's surface. In this study, measured the residual stress in a material's surface by using a Rayleigh wave and XRD equipment.
