Experimental validation of inverse heat conduction method: quenching of steels XC42 and XC80

  • A. Azim (a1), P. Archambault (a2), S. Denis (a2) and H. Rhanim (a1)


Two inverses methods are developed to calculate the surface heat flux and temperature of a body during heat treatment. Knowing temperature of an inner point of the solid and taking into account the phase transformation non-linearity, the surface heat flux evolution is estimated by an inverse algorithm. The experimental validation of both methods is performed in XC42 and XC80 steels case.
