QTSteel Software

Computer Simulation of the Heat Treatment Response of through Hardened, Carbon and Alloy Steels in Terms of Microstructure and Mechanical Properties.

Program TT Steel

QTSteel software enables:

  • »decomposition diagram of steel with given chemical composition display
  • »special objects cooling curves calculation (round or flat bar, cylinder, ring, pipe) for cooling conditions sequence given by a user (cooling media database)
  • »importing temperatures of general 2D-solids, calculated in FEM packages (FLUX, FormFEM)
  • »calculation of structure components content (% of ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite) and of steel mechanical properties (HV, HB, HRC hardness, yield strength, tensile strength) after quenching and subsequent tempering/annealing for given cooling curve
  • »calculation of structure components content (% of ferrite, pearlite, bainite and martensite) and of steel mechanical properties (HV, HB, HRC hardness, yield strength, tensile strength) after quenching and subsequent tempering/annealing across the heat treated body’s cross-section or in its spots under the surface
  • »calculation of mechanical properties progression after hardening (tempering/annealing), depending on the depth under the heat treated body surface

Steel groups supported by QTSteel software:

  • »carbon medium alloyed steels – carbon content from 0.06% to 0.5% with alloying elements total amount up to 10%
  • »low carbon microalloyed steels – carbon content from 0.06% to 0.4% on condition that Nb + Ti > 0
  • »low-alloy tool steels – carbon content from 0.5% to 1.8% with alloying elements total amount up to 5% if carbon content is less than 1.2% or with alloying elements total amount up to 3% if carbon content is more than 1.2%
  • »ultra low carbon steels – carbon content from 0.001% to 0.06%
