Heat Treatment Process Design Tool
December 1, 2005
Deformation Control Technology Inc.DANTE® is a finite element based software package for simulating carburization and hardening processes for steel parts, which allows predicting carbon profiles for carburized parts, residual stress state in parts after heat treatment, the evolution and final volume fractions of metallurgical phases, hardness distribution and part distortion. DANTE couples a multiphase constitutive model with diffusive and martensitic phase transformation models to accurately model heat treatment processes. Simulation capabilities include furnace heating, gas carburization, low-pressure carburization, immersion quenching in oil, molten salt or polymer solutions, gas quenching, spray and intensive quenching, press or fixtured quenching, and tempering. It can help reduce process development time and cost.
