Original Press Release

New Manual on Intensive Quenching Systems Now Available from ASTM International

Press release date: December 8, 2010

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., - Manual 64, Intensive Quenching Systems: Engineering and Design, is now available from ASTM International. This comprehensive new manual focuses on highly-forced heat transfer - the Intensive Quenching (IQ) processes, with particular attention to the replacement of relatively expensive alloyed steels with less expensive carbon steels. Manual 64 features thirteen chapters that examine:
o Thermal and metallurgical design basics of high-strength steels;
o Transient nucleate boiling and self-regulated thermal processes;
o Critical heat flux densities and characteristics of heat transfer during film boiling;
o Convective heat transfer;
o Generalized equations for determination of cooling time for bodies of any shape during quenching;
o Regular thermal process and Kondratjev form factors;
o Stress state of steel parts during IQ;
o Steel quenching in liquid media under pressure;
o Steel super-strengthening phenomenon;
o Intensive steel quenching methods;
o Design of industrial quenching systems;
o Review of practical applications of IQ methods; and
o Inverse problems in quench process design. This unique manual is intended for metallurgists and mechanical engineers to assist them in their work to design quenching systems and to implement those mechanical systems. It is also for student and post-graduate students. Manual 64, Intensive Quenching Systems: Engineering and Design, is available for $120 USD in hard copy (252 pages; soft cover 8.5" x 11"; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7019-3; Stock #: MNL64) or as an E-book (ISBN: 978-0-8031-8429-9; Stock #: MNL64-EB).
