CHTE Researchers Tackle Real-World Heat Treat Problems

CHTE’s latest research project is called “Guidelines for Assessing Distortion and Residual Stress.” According to Richard Sisson, George F. Fuller Professor of Mechanical Engineering and CHTE technical director, this is an area of huge concern; companies spend millions of dollars scrapping parts that become distorted during the heat treat process, in either the heating or cooling period. Further, some materials have stored residual stress, which causes distortion and compromises part integrity. Read more the full article here.
