Simulation Of Heat Transfer Properties And Residual Stress Analyses Of Cooling Curves Obtained From Quenching Studies 2005-01-4178
This paper describes the use of computational simulation to examine the heat transfer properties and resulting residual stress obtained by quenching a standard probe into various quench oils. Cooling curves (time-temperature profiles) were obtained after immersing a preheated 12.5 mm dia. × 60 mm cylindrical Inconel 600 (Wolfson) probe with a Type K thermocouple inserted into the geometric center into a mineral oil quenchant. Different quenching conditions were used, as received (“fresh”) and after oxidation. Surface temperatures at the cooling metal - liquid quenchant interface and heat transfer coefficients are calculated using HT-Mod, a recently released computational code. Using this data, the temperature distribution was calculated. The corresponding residual stresses were calculated using ABAQUS. This work illustrates potential benefits of computational simulation to examine the expected impact of different quenchants and quenching conditions on a heat treatment process.
