Abstract [en]

The present work describes the first steps in creating a robust material model able to predict volume changes due to thermal expansion and phase transformations. A dilatometer test is simulated starting from room temperature with an original microstructure constituting a mixture of ferrite and pearlite. During heating, the structure transforms to austenite, which upon quenching will transform into martensite. Both thermal expansion and phase transformations will give rise to volume changes which are modeled in the present work. After adjusting the model parameters to experimental data, a simulation of a dilatometer test is favorably compared to experimental data. The successful reproduction of volume changes allows accurate simulations of distortions during industrial heat treatments, which is the aim of the on-going research.

Abstract [en]

Case hardening distortions are a major problem for gear manufacturers. The aim of the current work is to create a simulation model, able to predict how and when case hardening distortions arise. The results presented in this thesis form a basis for such a model.

Two case hardening steels, with base carbon contents of 0.20 and 0.21 % C were studied using dilatometer experiments. One of them was carburized to 0.36, 0.52 and 0.65 % C in order to investigate the influence of carbon content. Experiments were performed during both isothermal and continuous heating and cooling conditions. The results were used to evaluate phase transformations, heat expansion behaviors and phase transformation strains. The expansion behavior of the material was modeled as a function of temperature, carbon content and phase fractions. The phase transformations to martensite and bainite were modeled, using the Koistinen-Marburger equation and a transformation rate equation based on Austin-Rickett kinetics, respectively. Experiments were simulated using the COMSOL Multiphysics software, to verify the model with respect to martensite and bainite transformations, heat expansion behavior and phase transformation strains.
