Applying CFD to Characterize Gear Response during Intensive Quenching Process

•The fluid flow field that exists in any quenching operation can lead to variations in surface heat flux that lead to distortion, as well as variations of residual stress, phase and hardness distributions, etc.
•Flow field and heat flux predicted by CFD (Fluent).
•Applying CFD results as thermal boundary condition, DANTE transient thermal/stress analysis is used to predict distortion, residual stress, hardness and phase distributions.
