1st International conference on heat treatment and surface engineering of tools and dies, IFHTSE 2005 (08 – 11 June 2005, Pula, Croatia)

ABSTRACT:
A novel  numerical approach for testing and evaluation of  quenching media and quenching systems is  outlined. The technique proposed is  based on  determination of  heat transfer coefficient from temperature signals recorded and applying it as input for simulation of quenching  process. The evaluation method is based on the calculated microstructural and mechanical properties of cylindrical samples.
