A finite element model of steel profiles cooling has been developed, taking into account the thermal, mechanical and metallurgical aspects. It allows calculation of the temperature, the phases and the stresses and strains. The program is used for the development and determination of thermal treatments (QST, selective cooling). Some examples are given to show how the program can be applied to industrial problems. The comparison between numerical and experimental results shows excellent agreement.
