Abstract: Grind hardening process is a novel alternative surface hardening method. The heat generation rate and partition and the temperature field within the workpiece are modelled for the prediction of the Hardness Penetration Depth (HPD). A maximum HPD is indicated that exists for specific sets of process parameters.

 

Keywords: grinding; surface hardening; heat treatment; grind hardening; process modelling; thermal analysis; hardness penetration depth; HPD.
