Intensive Quenching Systems: Engineering and Design

Author(s): ["N.I. Kobasko"," M.A. Aronov"," J.A. Powell"," G.E. Totten"]

This comprehensive new manual focuses on highly-forced heat transfer—the Intensive Quenching (IQ) processes, with particular attention to the replacement of relatively expensive alloyed steels with less expensive carbon steels. 13 comprehensive chapters examine:
• Thermal and metallurgical design basics of high-strength steels
• Transient nucleate boiling and self-regulated thermal processes
• Critical heat flux densities and characteristics of heat transfer during film boiling
• Convective heat transfer
• Generalized equations for determination of cooling time for bodies of any shape during quenching
• Regular thermal process and Kondratjev form factors
• Stress state of steel parts during IQ
• Steel quenching in liquid media under pressure
• Steel superstrengthening phenomenon
• Intensive steel quenching methods
• Design of industrial quenching systems
• Review of practical applications of IQ methods
• Inverse problems in quench process design

With this unique manual, you are can address the following problems:
• Calculate cooling time to provide optimal quenched layer after intensive quenching of steel parts
• Create beneficial high compressive residual stresses at the surface of steel parts
• Use the "steel super-strengthening" phenomenon to make higher power density parts
• Develop synergies between the benefits from high compressive residual stresses and super-strengthening phenomenon, which significantly increases the fatigue life (and service life) of steel parts
• Improve the environmental conditions in your factory by switching from oil and polymer quenching to intensive quenching by plain water.
• Optimization of distortion control in the quenching of steel parts

This unique manual is intended for metallurgists and mechanical engineers to assist them in their work to design quenching systems and to implement those mechanical systems. It is also for student and post graduate students.
