Modified Tartagli Method for Calculation of Jominy Hardenability Curve
Basing on the experimental results of the hardenability investigations, which employed Jominy method, the model of the neural networks was developed and fully verified experimentally. The model makes it possible to obtain Jominy hardenability curves basing on the steel chemical composition. The modified hardenability curves calculation method is presented in the paper, initially developed by Tartaglia, Eldis, and Geissler, later extended by T. Inoue. The method makes use of the similarity of the Jominy curve to the hyperbolic secant function. The empirical formulae proposed by the authors make calculation of the hardenability curve possible basing on the chemical composition of the steel. However, regression coefficients characteristic for the particular steel grade must be known. Replacing some formulae by the neural network models is proposed in the paper.
