The Jominy End Quench Test

The Jominy Test involves heating a test piece from the steel 25mm diameter and mm long to an austenitising temperature and quenching from one end with a controlled and standardised jet of water. For example, the cooling rate at a distance of 9. High hardenability allows slower quenches to be used e. Example Jominy end quench test data A plain carbon steel and an alloy steel were assessed using the Jominy end quench test.

The initial red-hot state represents the austenitic condition and the subsequent cooling results in a variety of transformations that depend on the chemical composition of the steel. The simulation ignores the effect of heat loss from the sides of the specimen, i. For example, any video clips and answers to questions are missing.


This results in a progressive decrease in the rate of cooling along the bar from the quenched end. The round specimen is then ground flat along its length to a depth of 0.

The recorded hardness depends on the indentation load and the width of the square indentation made by the diamond. 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 quenfh volume fractions of martensite develop. It is typically used with lower carbon steels. The variation of hardness was measured with distance from the quenched end.

A jet of water emerges from the cone at the bottom, to touch the lower end of the sample. A high hardenability is required for through hardening of large components.

Carbon controls the hardness of the martensite. Similar tests have been developed in other countries, such as the SAC test, which uses a sample quenched from all sides by immersion in water. The cold region has transformed from austenite to a mixture of martensite, ferrite and pearlite. In this heat flow simulation you can adjust various parameters and observe the effect on the heat flow and cooling of the specimen.

The main alloying elements which affect hardenability are carbon, boron and a group of elements including Cr, Mn, Mo, Si and Ni. Slow quenching speeds are often chosen to reduce distortion and residual stress in components. The formatting page breaks, etc of the printed version is unpredictable and highly dependent on your browser. Structure of En 24 at 10 cm position along Jominy bar, furthest from the quenched end.


The austenite grain size can be affected by other stages in the processing of steel, and therefore the hardenability of a steel also depends on the previous stages employed in its production.

Measurement of hardenability Uses of Jominy data: Boron is gest very potent alloying element, jomint requiring 0. The Vickers hardness test uses a square pyramidal diamond indentor.

The size of the time step is set to the maximum allowed while ensuring numerical stability of the simulation. You have three steels. A standardised bar, The proportions of the phases at any position depends on the cooling rate, with more martensite formed where the cooling rate is fastest.

The hardenability depends on the alloy composition of the steel, and can also be affected by prior processing, such as the austenitisation temperature. Structure of En 8 at the quenched jlminy of Jominy bar. This describes the ability of the steel to be hardened in depth by quenching.

Qjench 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. The data is shown as Vickers and Rockwell hardness. Hardenability therefore describes the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions.
