Call for papers: "Quenching and Control of Distortion"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Microstructure and Materials Properties.

This special issue aims to present various heat treatment procedures for steels and non-ferrous alloys from the perspective of quenching techniques and resulting mechanical and physical chemical properties. The special emphasis on quenching materials is associated with phase deformations, internal and residual stresses and distortion of machine parts.

The special issue is aimed at experts working in the field of metal heat treatment and experimental and numerical investigation.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Cooling curve analysis and hardenability prediction
  • Quenchant characterisation and analysis of cooling properties
  • Quenchant characterisation by acoustical noise analysis of cooling properties
  • Application of computer models to the determination of heat transfer coefficients
  • Numerical and experimental investigation of quenching processes
  • Numerical simulation of quenching processes and distortion
  • Modelling spray quenching
  • Distortion calculation of tool steel dies during hardening
  • Control of distortion in the induction heat treating process
  • Modelling of heat treatment of steels from concepts to process simulation
  • Computer simulation of temperature and thermal stress fields during quenching processes
  • Residual stresses and distortion of machine parts
  • Distortion occurring during carburising and quenching

Important Dates
Submission of manuscripts: 31 March, 2016
