Slow quenching speeds are often chosen to reduce distortion and residual stress in components. High hardenability allows slower quenches to be used e. The furnace used to heat the steel into the austenite phase field. Increasing the austenite grain size increases the hardenability of steels. There are different scales for the Rockwell hardness test. The cooling rate will be highest at the end being quenched, and will decrease as distance from the end increases.

When a hot steel work-piece is jomminythe area in contact with the water immediately cools and its temperature equilibrates with the quenching medium.

The Jominy End Quench Test

The main alloying elements which affect hardenability are carbon, boron and a group of elements including Cr, Mn, Mo, Si and Ni. Measurement of hardenability Uses of Jominy data: If the intention is to produce a martensitic structure, then the constituents of the steel must be such that the phase is obtained over the depth required.

If the fluid is agitated cooling occurs even more quickly. A standardised bar, The hardness number is hhardenability denoted by HV20 for H ardness V ickers 20 kg, for example. Subsequent to cooling a flat surface is ground hardenqbility the test piece and the hardenability is then found by measuring the hardness along the bar. Jominy end quench test can also be used to demonstrate the effects of microstructure and alloying variables on the hardenability of steels.


The hardenability of a metal alloy is the depth to which a material is hardened after putting it through a heat treatment process. The hardness is measured at intervals from the quenched end. You have three steels.

Jominy End Quench Test

The depth from the quenched end, over which martensite is obtained, is then the measure of hardenability. This method of increasing the hardenability is rarely used since substantial increases in hardenability require large austenite grain size, obtained through high austenitisation temperatures. Select the most appropriate steel to hrdenability the necessary levels of mechanical properties, residual stress and distortion in a 1mm diameter wood-working drill.

Knowledge of the hardenability of steels is necessary in order to select the appropriate combination of alloy and heat treatment for components of different size, to minimise thermal stresses and distortion. It is typically jomint with lower carbon steels.

The unit of hardenability is length. It is an indication of how deep into the material a certain hardness can be achieved. Knowledge about the hardenability of steels is necessary to be able to select the appropriate combination of alloy steel and heat treatment to manufacture components of different size to minimize thermal stresses and distortion. The effect of boron is also independent of the amount of boron, provided sufficient is added, and the effect of boron is greatest at lower carbon contents.

The Jominy end quench test is used to measure the hardenability of a steel, which is a measure of the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions.

The simulation ignores the effect of heat loss from the sides of the specimen, i. Three low alloy steels, which differ only in their carbon content 0. The steel sample is normalised to eliminate differences in microstructure due to previous forging, and then austenitised. This information is plotted joniny a hardenability graph. For example, a steel of a high hardenability can transform to a high fraction of martensite to depths of several millimetres under relatively slow cooling, such as an oil hardenabulity, whereas a steel of low hardenability may only form a high fraction of hardenabolity to a depth of less than a millimetre, even under rapid cooling such as a water quench.


For example, any video clips and answers to questions are missing.

The cooling rate varies along the length of the sample from very rapid at the quenched end, to rates equivalent to air cooling at the other end. Click on the circled data points to see how the microstructure varies with distance jominh the quenched end. Structure of En 24 at 5 cm position along Jominy bar.

Three medium carbon steels 0. The test sample is quickly transferred to the test machine, where it is held vertically and sprayed with a controlled flow of water onto one end of the sample. Jominy served as president of ASM in Take a sample from the furnace and place it on the Jominy test fixtures and observe the cooling pattern.

There are quite complex interactions between the different elements, which also affect the temperatures of the phase transformation and the resultant microstructure. Jominy end quench unit for testing the hardenability of steels. The Vickers hardness test uses a square pyramidal diamond indentor. The interval is typically 1.
