Quenching of a Steel Billet
Application ID: 75961
In this model, a steel billet is quenched in oil from an austenitic state. The austenite decomposes into a combination of ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite. Residual stresses and strains in the billet are computed.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Metal Processing Module and
- Geomechanics Module, or Nonlinear Structural Materials Module and
- MEMS Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
