Abstract

An efficient computational model for the quenching of steels that includes the effects of phase transformations and temperature dependence of material properties is presented. Two different multi-phase constitutive relationships, one based on average material properties and the other based on average stress and strain fields, were implemented and compared to measurements of distortion and surface residual stress in experimental plate samples. It was found that both models perform equally well in terms of predicting distortion but the stress predictions obtained from the material model based on average stress and strain fields were closer to the experiment.
