Induction Heating and Heat Treatment
This article discusses special considerations relative to induction heating of stainless steels and nickel-base superalloys. It focuses on the various industrial and high-temperature applications of induction heating to stainless steel and superalloy components, namely, primary melting processes, preheating for primary and secondary forming processes, heat treatments, brazing, and thermal processing for fusion welds. The article also provides information on computational modeling of induction heating processes for super alloys and stainless steels.
