Carburization and Quenching of a Steel Gear

Application ID: 78061

This model shows how to simulate carburization and quenching of a steel gear. Diffusion of carbon into the surface of the gear affects the onset of martensitic transformation. Residual stresses are computed, and it is shown that high residual compressive stresses appear at the root of the gear.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
