Update and verification of heat treatment simulation software

Update and verification of heat treatment simulation software designed to be used to predict results of advanced case hardening. The system uses a general commercial FEM package ABAQUS and the developed subroutines. The verification was done by comparing the predicted and experimental case hardening response with different geometry of work-pieces. Main result is the gear distortion obtained with different distributions of heat transfer coefficients.
