HYPERTREMPE [2 records]

Record 1 2015-03-24

English

Subject field(s)
  • Metal Processing
CONT

Numerous procedures have been devised for the rapid quenching of metals and alloys from the melt. Most methods yield samples in the form of flakes or pieces of film.

OBS

"Rapid quenching" and "ultrafast quenching" appear to be broader in meaning than the other terms above.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Transformation des métaux
CONT

Les techniques d'hypertrempe [...] permettent de solidifier brutalement un matériau fondu en le refroidissant à des vitesses qui peuvent dépasser un million de degrés par seconde. Elles ont ouvert un nouveau champ d'investigation, celui des métaux amorphes [...] La trempe ultra-rapide est obtenue en projetant violemment l'oxyde fondu contre une paroi froide, afin de l'écraser et de créer un contact thermique aussi étroit que possible.

Record 2 2012-06-12

English

Subject field(s)
  • Tempering of Metals
CONT

Solution annealing is carried out to dissolve alloying elements in the matrix homogenously and to obtain uniform homogeneous microstructures and material properties.

CONT

Ferrous materials are annealed within a temperature range of 950 to 1200°C ... . Non-ferrous metals are annealed within a temperature range of 460 to 540°C ... . Depending on the material, annealing can be followed by a further treatment, the so-called ageing, for precipitation hardening.

OBS

Annealing of austenitic stainless steel (often referred to as solution treatment) is occasionally called quench annealing because the metal must be cooled rapidly, usually by water quenching, to prevent sensitisation (except for stabilised and extra-low carbon grades).

CONT

Solution annealing and quenching, the standard [heat] treatment that produces normal tensile properties and the desired toughness, involves austenitizing followed quickly by water quenching.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Recuit (Métal)
DEF

Traitement thermique ayant pour but la mise et le maintien en solution de certains constituants de l'alliage (phases, précipités).

CONT

Le recuit de mise en solution fait passer en solution solide certains constituants se trouvant initialement sous forme de précipités (carbures, composés intermétalliques, etc.) [et] a souvent pour effet de durcir les alliages (alliages d'aluminium).

OBS

hypertrempe: [...] Traitement thermique dont le but est d'obtenir à la température ambiante une structure austénitique homogène. Il est suivi d'un refroidissement très rapide dans l'air ou dans l'eau.
