Design for Heat Treatment
This article presents an overview of the techniques used in the design for heat treatment and discusses the primary criteria for design: minimization of distortion and undesirable residual stresses. It provides theoretical and empirical guidelines to understand the sources of common heat treat defects. A simple example is presented to demonstrate how thermal and phase-transformation-induced strains cause dimensional changes and residual stresses. The article concludes with a discussion on the heat treatment process modeling technology.
