CHARACTERIZATION OF QUENCHING PERFORMANCE BY USIN COMPUTERIZED PROCEDURES AND DATA BASE OF HEAT TREATMENT PROCESSES
Proceedings of the 8th Seminar of the International Federation for Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering , IFHTSE 2001, Dubrovnik- Cavtat, Croatia, 12 – 14 September 2001.
Computational method by which the cooling power of quenching media can be determined is outlined. The measured time-temperature samples as a result of cooling curve test are analyzed by the new software developed, in order to characterize quantitatively the quenchants. The method applied is based on Fourier analysis. Examples for an evaluation and comparison of cooling performance of quenchants are presented the applicability of the computational technique.
