This alternative longer video clip contributed by Oxford Brookes University shows both the transfer of the sample from furnace to Jominy machine, and the jet spraying one end of the sample.

High hardness occurs where high volume fractions of martensite develop. Increasing the austenite grain size therefore decreases the available nucleation sites, which retards the rate of the phase transformation.

The recorded hardness depends on the indentation load and the width of the square indentation made by the diamond. In the example here, the surface will be transformed to martensite, but the core will have a bainitic structure with some martensite. There are conversion charts between the hardness scales. In this heat flow simulation you can adjust various parameters and observe the effect on the heat flow and cooling of the specimen.

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

Please follow this hardennability if you would like to provide a short review for this TLP. The formatting page breaks, etc of the printed version is unpredictable and highly dependent on your browser. Steels with low hardenability may be used for smaller components, such as chisels and shears, or for surface hardened components such as gears. The size of the time step is set to the maximum allowed while ensuring tesf stability of the simulation.


Retrieved 9 December Take a sample from the furnace and place it on the Jominy test fixtures and observe the cooling pattern. The geometry of the part also affects the cooling rate: If the fluid is agitated cooling occurs even more quickly. Similar tests hardenabilty been developed in other countries, such as the SAC test, which uses a sample quenched from all sides by immersion in water.

Select the most appropriate steel to achieve the necessary levels of mechanical properties, residual stress and distortion in an injection moulding die for a mobile phone plastic case.

Hardenability is the ability of a steel to partially or completely transform from austenite to some fraction of martensite at a given depth below the surface, when cooled under a given condition. The water jet is started and sprayed onto the bottom of the specimen until the specimen is cool. The Jominy test provides a measure of the ability of a steel to harden by transforming into martensite under set conditions, i.

The furnace used to heat the steel into the austenite phase field.

Hardenability – Wikipedia

The Rockwell hardness test measures a number which depends on the difference in the depth of an indentation made by two loads, a minor load followed by a major load.


The Vickers hardness test uses a square pyramidal diamond indentor.

Jominy end quench unit for testing the hardenability of steels. This describes the ability of the steel jomny be hardened in depth by quenching. The steel sample is normalised to eliminate differences in microstructure due to previous forging, and then austenitised.

The Jominy End Quench Test

The hardness number is usually denoted by HV20 for H ardness V ickers 20 kg, for example. This information is plotted on a hardenability graph. 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 should not be confused with hardnesswhich is a measure of a sample’s resistance to indentation or scratching. Harcenability compositions are sometimes described in terms of a carbon equivalent which describes the magnitude of the effect of all of the elements on hardenability. The hardness is measured at intervals from the quenched end. Jominy served as president of ASM in Boron has a very strong affinity for oxygen and nitrogen, with which it forms compounds.

Hardenability therefore describes the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions.
