Paper Title:
Optimization of Quench Tank Structure Based on CFD Simulation
  Abstract

In order to investigate the flow rate distribution and improve the flow rate uniformity of the quenchant in a quench tank, the ultrasonic Doppler velocimeter (UDV) was used to measure the flow rate of quenchant with agitation, and then a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation was carried out to simulate the flow rate distribution without / with flow baffles. According to the CFD simulation results, the structures and positions of flow baffles in the draft-tube were optimized to obtain the uniform flow rate distribution in the quench zone, which were verified by experiments as well. The simulation and experimental results show that the UDV is suitable for measuring the flow rate of a large-size quench tank. This research provided a solid foundation for optimizing the structure design of flow baffles in production quench tanks.
