Analysis on Section Effect of Heavy Plate by Finite Element Method during Controlled Cooling
ANSYS implicit finite element method (FEM) was used to simulate the process of controlled cooling of 50mm heavy plate. And the corresponding cooling curve and temperature field distribution were obtained from the calculations. The results indicated the section inhomogeneity of temperature at different place from surface to center of steel plate. Different cooling conditions were compared to analyze the effect of cooling schedule on section inhomogeneity, which could provide theoretical basis for selecting appropriate cooling schedule to alleviate the section effect.
