Quenching operation of aluminum alloys: measurements and numerical simulations
The part-bath heat transfer coefficient during a quenching operation is particularly important in order to simulate the workpiece hardening. The estimation of this coefficient requires specific developments in the field of instrumentation. This paper presents an experimental methodology which was developed within the laboratory. Experimental results are compared to numerical simulations using a heat transfer coefficient obtained from experimental estimation. This comparative approach allows to validate the experimental methodology and also to ensure that the tested pieces are representative.
