Simulation Quenching and Tempering Processes of a Ring Gear
This paper presents the simulation of heat transfer during quenching and tempering processes in a ring gear of large dimensions. The ring gear is used in the transmission of power to the rollers of a sugar cane mill. Simulation of the thermal processes is necessary to assess the possibility of increasing the useful life of the gear, since this works in very extreme conditions. By achieving an increase in the useful life of the ring gear, considerable savings in production costs for these elements are obtained.
