Ready to leverage your quenching process with CFD?

Discover how automotive, aerospace and other industries benefit from AVL’s simulation approach

Heat treatment enhances the physical properties of many automotive or aircraft components. However, engineers often struggle with undesirable thermal gradients and residual stresses. This may lead to increased distortion, cracks or undesired residuals compared with operational loads during the quenching process.


Virtual prototyping with its short turnaround times allows you to gain detailed insight into this highly complex problem, which - in real life - requires a lot of time to investigate.


OEMs and TIERs have taken advantage of predictive quenching simulations with AVL FIRE™ for years. Recent examples by FORD MOTOR COMPANY were presented at the 2018 Thermal Processing in Motion conference and in an HTPro article.


The methodology is applied to investigate the heat treatment of highly complex parts such as cylinder heads and engine blocks. It predicts large temperature gradients during water quenching leading to the identification of weak spots, e.g. locations between the intake port and the water cooling jacket.


This live webinar introduces you to AVL’s quenching simulation approach, which supports the production process by increasing quality, while reducing weight and cost.
