Description / Abstract:


A survey of actual methods (based on direct temperature measurement) for quenching intensity evaluation in laboratory conditions as well as in workshop practice is given, and commented, especially in relation to possible prediction of metallurgical transformations and hardness distribution on the cross-section of real workpieces.

Apart from the widely used immersion quenching technique, the fundamental and latest developments of other quenching techniques such as spray quenching, gas quenching in vacuum furnaces and hot salt bath quenching are briefly described. Information about 'intensive quenching' is given, and the prospects of further developments in the field of quenching outlined
