Laser-assisted laser peen forming (LALPF) is proposed as a hybrid process to combine laser heating and laser peening to improve the bending capability of laser peen forming (LPF) effectively. To predict LALPF-induced bending deformation and mechanism of bending capability improvement, a sequentially coupled modeling approach is established by integrating three models, i.e., a thermoelastic-plastic model to predict the temperature, a dynamic model to obtain the eigenstrain of laser shock, and an eigenstrain model to predict the bending deformation. The effects of temperature, thermal stress, and thermal plastic strain of laser heating and the coupling effects on the bending deformation were investigated. The results show that the interaction of temperature and thermal stress are the dominant factors contributing to the improvement of bending capability.
