Surface Induction Hardening Models Based on a Novel Computational Method of Artificial Change of Material Parameters
The paper deals with a novel method suitable for modelling of surface induction hardening and other tasks, where the problem of discretisation of very thin eddy-currents surface layer is present. The method is based on artificial change of material parameters in the computer model. A methodology is suggested and limitations of its application are thoroughly tested. Odds and merits over other possible methods are also discussed.
