The Mechanical Behavior of Aluminium Alloy Quenching Process
Since the aluminum alloy quenching is a complicated and a prompt heat-pressure coupling processing, traditional experimental tests and empirical judgments cannot explain and predict the physical and the force behavior completely during the quenching process. Dynamic simulation of the quenching process is conducted using the finite analysis method. Development laws of the stress and the strain field of the surface layer and core of the alloy during the quenching process are described based on the verification of the simulation. States and process history of the stress and the strain in each phase during the quench are obtained, which provides ponderable data and theoretical value for a fully understanding of the aluminum alloy quenching.
