Simulation of scanning induction hardening for spline shaft
Simulating such process is possible only with time-dependent numerical mesh and continuous updating of all simulation parameters. In this paper, we show how such simulation can be conducted using capabilities of coupling electromagnetic and thermal analysis with mesh motion in simulation platform CENOS. Developed three-dimensional model of simulation of induction scanning process of spline shaft is used to estimate temperature distribution and hardening profile. This study also shows how different parameters influence the hardening profile and the total power consumption for one hardening cycle.
