Virtual heat treatment tool for monitoring and optimising ht process

Objective

The objective of the VHT project is to provide designers of steel parts and companies performing heat treatment with a Virtual Heat Treatment software (so called in this project Decision Support System DSS), able to:
- Predict distortion resulting from carburising, nitriding and quenching of steel parts both qualitatively and quantitatively;
- Optimise time and operating condition of heat treatments materials The VHT software to develop is based on a combination of 3 approaches:
-Finite Element Analysis -Knowledge Based System (KBS);
- Databases (Material & Generic)18 partners, from 4 IMS regions (Europe, Japan, Korea, Canada) joined this project and will bring their know-how in the field of simulation of Heat Treatment.
