Structure of En 8 at the quenched end of Jominy bar. The bar is divided into 25 equal length elements, and, at each time step of the simulation, for each element, a new tet, resulting from heat transfer at either end, is calculated. These include alloying elements and grain size. The Vickers test is most commonly used in the UK. It is more common to control hardenability with other elements, and to use carbon levels of less than 0. This alternative longer video clip contributed by Oxford Brookes University shows both the transfer of the sample from furnace to Jominy machine, and the jet spraying one end of the sample.

Your browser does not support the video tag. The most commonly used elements are Cr, Mo and Mn. Carbon quencu the hardness of the martensite. The variation of hardness was measured with distance from the quenched end.

The Jominy End Quench Test

The Jominy end quench test is used to measure the hardenability of a steel, which is a measure of the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions. The test sample is quickly transferred to the test machine, where it is held vertically and sprayed with a controlled flow of water onto one end of the sample.

Again, you tet three steels. Select the most appropriate steel to achieve the necessary levels of mechanical properties, residual stress and distortion in an injection moulding die for a mobile phone plastic case.


James Marrow University of Cambridge Content development: At higher carbon levels, the formation of martensite is depressed to lower temperatures and the transformation from austenite to martensite may be incomplete, leading to retained austenite. The austenite grain size can be affected by other stages in the processing of steel, and therefore the hardenability of a steel also depends on the previous stages employed in its production. Clicking on the circled jominj points will take you to images of the microstructure at that location in the sample.

This requires the addition of “gettering” elements such as aluminium and titanium to react preferentially with the oxygen and nitrogen in the steel. In this heat flow simulation you can adjust various parameters and observe the effect on the heat flow and cooling of the specimen.

This cools the specimen from one end, simulating the effect of quenching a larger steel component in water. Increasing the austenite grain size increases the hardenability of steels. En 8 is a low hardenability steel when compared with En The hardness number quejch usually denoted by HV20 for H ardness V ickers 20 kg, for example.

The size of the time step is set to the maximum allowed while ensuring numerical stability of the simulation. Similar tests have been developed in other countries, such as the SAC test, which uses a sample quenched from all sides by immersion in water. Increasing the carbon content increases the hardness of steels up to about 0. However, the effect is too small be be commonly used tesr control fest hardenability.

Ferrite and pearlite are formed where the cooling rate is slower. For example, any video clips and answers to questions are missing. Slower cooling rates occur at the core of larger components, compared to the faster cooling rate at the surface. Please follow this link if you would like to provide a short review for this TLP. The Jominy test provides a measure of the ability of a steel to harden by transforming into martensite under set conditions, i.


Hardenability is the ability of a steel to partially or completely transform from austenite to some fraction of martensite at a given depth below the surface, when cooled under a given condition.

The simulation ignores the effect of heat loss from the sides of the specimen, i. The alloy steel qyench has the highest hardenability, forming martensite to a greater depth than the plain carbon steel.

The Rockwell hardness of snd metal can also be determined using a similar technique. The depth from the quenched end, over which martensite is obtained, is then the measure of hardenability. This composite microstructure of martensite and austenite gives a lower hardness to the steel, although the microhardness of the martensite phase itself is still high.

Structure of En 24 at 10 cm position along Jominy bar, furthest from the quenched end. Knowledge about the hardenability of steels is necessary to be able to select the appropriate combination of alloy steel and heat treatment to manufacture components of different size to minimize thermal stresses and distortion.

This animation requires Adobe Flash Player 8 and later, which can be downloaded here. This is commonly used in the USA. James Marrow and Ejd Hudson. The retardation is due to the need for redistribution of the alloying elements during the diffusional phase transformation from austenite to ferrite and pearlite.

It is then carefully and quickly moved to the quenching machine and positioned above a water jet. Steels with high hardenability are needed for large high strength components, such as large extruder screws for injection moulding of polymers, pistons for rock breakers, mine shaft supports, aircraft undercarriages, and also for small high precision components such as die-casting moulds, drills and presses for stamping coins.

There are quite complex interactions between the different elements, which also affect the temperatures of the phase transformation and the resultant microstructure.
