ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.quenched steel - steel that has been hardened by immersing it in water or oil to cool it
steel - an alloy of iron with small amounts of carbon; widely used in construction; mechanical properties can be varied over a wide range
martensite - a solid solution of carbon in alpha-iron that is formed when steel is cooled so rapidly that the change from austenite to pearlite is suppressed; responsible for the hardness of quenched steel
oil-hardened steel - steel that is quenched in oil

The topics include measuring and predicting residual stresses in heat-treated large forgings, modeling induction heat distribution in carbon-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics, computer modeling mechanical properties and microstructure in a quenched steel specimen, the numerical simulation of phase transformation during the hot stamping process, and reducing gear size for compact transmission design by selecting steel grade and heat treatment processes with computer modeling.
The presence of martensite in quenched steel, while greatly increasing its hardness and tensile strength, causes the material to be brittle as its formation is accompanied by severe matrix distortions.
Prices of quenched steel will be more stable, despite a weakening trend in demand, the company forecast.

Some SEK700m of the expenditure is earmarked for the continued expansion of SSAB Oxelosund's quenched steel capacity in Sweden.
As estimated in the first quarter, the production outage resulting from the gas pipe damage in Oxelosund led to a shortfall in quenched steel production of 10 thousand tonnes.
Thanks to our close cooperation with customers and investments in increased quenched steel production capacity, we have a strong platform and are investing in the future," concluded Martin Lindqvist.
