Dear All,

I am interested in modeling the carburizing ([url] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carburizing [/url]) heat treatment process in ABAQUS. Actually the carburizing process follows the ficks second law of diffusion ([url] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficks_laws_of_diffusion [/url]). If any one had prior experience or any suggestions to model the process, kindly share your views.

Thanks and Regards,

Rohith

Are you interested in also quenching the material? If so, youd have to have a constitutive model that accounts for martensitic transformtations, TRIP, etc., and ABAQUS does not have anything like that to my knowledge. There is, however, an add-on which I believe can do heat treatment simulations well: Google ABAQUS and Dante.

(By the way, heat treatment is a bit far from polymers, no..? Well, at least you seem to have an affinity for carbon, and so do polymer chains.)
