This TLP considers the basic concepts of hardenability and the Jominy test.
High hardenability allows slower quenches to be used e. Here a specimen is in place. The retardation is due to the need for redistribution of the alloying elements during the diffusional phase transformation from austenite to ferrite and joiny.
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.
The Jominy End Quench Test
There are quite complex interactions between the different elements, which also affect the temperatures of the phase transformation and the resultant microstructure.
En 8 is a low hardenability steel when compared with En The cold region has transformed from austenite to a mixture of martensite, ferrite and pearlite. The nucleation of ferrite and pearlite occurs at heterogeneous nucleation sites such as the austenite grain boundaries. Again, you have three steels. The hardness is measured at intervals from the quenched end.
Structure of En 24 at 10 cm position along Jominy bar, furthest from the quenched end. This animation requires Adobe Flash Player 8 and later, which can be downloaded here.
The main alloying elements which affect hardenability are carbon, boron and a group of elements including Cr, Mn, Mo, Si and Ni. 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.
However, the effect is too small be be commonly used for control of hardenability. The data is shown as Vickers and Rockwell hardness. The formatting page breaks, etc of the printed version is unpredictable and highly dependent on your browser. This data can be presented using CCT C ontinuous C ooling T ransformation diagrams which are used to select steels to suit the component size and quenching media.
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.

Increasing the austenite grain size increases the hardenability of steels. The Vickers hardness test uses a square pyramidal diamond indentor. Jominy end quench unit for testing the hardenability of steels. High carbon steels are prone to distortion and cracking during heat treatment, and can be difficult to machine in the annealed condition before heat treatment. In the example here, the surface will be transformed to martensite, but the core will have a bainitic structure with some martensite.
The Jominy end quench test is used to measure the hardenability of a steel, which is a measure of the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions. Select the most appropriate steel to achieve the necessary levels of mechanical properties, residual stress and distortion in a 1mm diameter wood-working drill. The interval is typically 1.
Hardenability therefore describes the capacity of the steel to harden in depth under a given set of conditions. The Jominy test provides a measure of the ability of a steel to harden by transforming into martensite under set conditions, i. It is then carefully and quickly moved to the quenching machine and positioned above a water jet. A high hardenability is required for through hardening of large components. Increasing the carbon content increases the hardness of steels up to about 0.
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.

A heat treatment that causes steel to harden is so much more than the meer plunging of hot metal into a fluid that is often a liquid. 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. The proportions of the phases at any position depends on the cooling rate, with more martensite formed where the cooling rate is fastest.
