Quenching processes are applied to long steel profiles after the rolling process to produce profiles with reliable service properties. The typical problem is the distortion that is occurring upon residual stresses. Profile distortion should be eliminated as it leads to rework expenditure and creates problems associated with bearing and bundling. Moreover, the residual stresses should be controlled to prevent the crack initiation. The modeling of the cooling process is difficult due to the… 
Finite Element Simulation of Steel Quench Distortion- Parametric Analysis of Processing Variables
Steel quenching from the austenite region is a widely used industrial process to increase strength and hardness through the martensitic transformation. It is well known, however, that it is very
Optimum Strategies to Reduce Residual Stresses and Distortion during the Metal Quenching Process
Quenching is a complex thermo-mechano-metallurgical problem. Unexplored or without an optimized cooling strategy, a quenching process can end up with high residual stresses and distortion. This paper
FE analysis of 6063 aluminium profiles with complex cross-section during online quenching processes
Thermal-elastic-plastic finite element (FE) theory and solution of thermal-structural coupled field were investigated on the basis of commercial software ANSYS. The FE model used to solve the

Distortion and Residual Stresses during Metal Quenching Process
Quenching is a complex thermo-mechano-metallurgical problem. During the quenching process, transient heat conduction, metallic phase transformations, and plastic behaviour of the metals introduce
Analysis of Residual Stresses During Heat Treatment of Large Forged Shafts Considering Transformation Plasticity and Creep Deformation
The long cooling time during heat treatment of a large forging due to mass effect leads to the creep deformation at not only high temperature but also transformation temperature ranges. Therefore,

Stresses are developed internally in metals when a change in density and strength arises from a phase transformation. It is shown that plastic flow, generally confined to the weaker phase, results
Mathematical model coupling phase transformation and temperature evolution during quenching of steels
AbstractTo calculate the internal stresses in steels during quenching it is necessary to be able to predict accurately the evolution of phase transformations during the cooling process. After a
Stress–phase-transformation interactions – basic principles, modelling, and calculation of internal stresses
AbstractThe two main effects of stress on phase transformation, kinetics modification and transformation plasticity, are reviewed for both diffusional and non-diffusional transformations. Results for
Mathematical models of anisothermal phase transformations in steels, and predicted plastic behaviour
Abstract n this paper, the kinetics of anisothermal structural transformations are first discussed. Classical models are shown to raise difficulties because they do not take into account the
Coupling between stress, temperature, and metallic structures during processes involving phase transformations
AbstractA study has been made of constitutive relations for a time–dependent inelastic material within the framework of continuum thermodynamics, and of the heat conduction equation and
Thermo‐mechanical finite element model of casting systems
A coupled finite element model is developed to simulate the metal casting process. We present a new method for capturing the solidification zone and obtaining the corresponding rate of phase change.
