Abstract

Heat treatment simulation helps to predict heat treatment results such as component microstructures, properties, residual stresses, and distortion, and thereby assists in reducing experimental effort in defining heat treatment parameters. This article discusses the modeling and simulation of age hardening as being the most important heat treatment to strengthen aluminum alloys. It provides information on the heat treatment simulation model, the yield strength model based on the responsible strengthening mechanisms, and the flow curve model based on mechanical tests. The article also discusses simulation of the quenching process, and provides examples for aluminum quenching simulation.
