Abstract

An elastoplastic finite element code was employed to determine the deformations and residual stresses induced by the quenching of 7150-Aluminum blocks measuring 15.88 cm(L)×15.88 cm(W)×8.26 cm(H) (6.25″×6.25″×3.25″) from 477°C (890°F) to 21°C (70°F). The purpose of this paper is to describe the procedure employed in the finite element simulation of the quenching process and to present the temperature-time response as well as the resulting residual stress patterns. Through-thickness principal residual stresses, von Mises stress, and the equivalent plastic stress components are presented and compared to experimental measurements of residual stresses obtained utilizing the layer removal technique.
