Best-Practice Heat-Treatments & New features in steel quenching simulation

S. Andrietti

This paper describes the new features in Steel quenching simulation and also the best practices in Heat Treatment. Simulating the Heat Treatment is a step ahead in simulating the entire production line processes.
With TRANSVALOR FORGE embedded heat treatment solution, temperature distribution during treatment can be predicted as well as mechanical fields and, more importantly, metallurgy evolution. This feature is available for steels alloys. Highlights of the new cementation, austenitisation, tempering models will be given. Also, new data import and export functionalities for IT diagram visualization will be presented.
