    Abstract

    Computer aided cooling curve analysis was carried out during immersion quenching of ISO/DIS 9950 quench probe. Water, brine solutions, polymer solutions, mineral oils, and vegetable oils were used as quench media. The results showed that the quench medium used had a significant effect on the quench probe cooling curve parameters. An empirical correlation was proposed to predict the average cooling rate from surface tension, wetting angle, thermal conductivity, and kinematic viscosity of the quench medium.
