Jominy End Quench for Light-Weight Alloy Development
The Jominy end quench test is well known as a method of measuring hardenability in steels. In nonferrous alloys, there is a desire to determine the effect of quenching on final properties after heat treating. The Jominy end quench test offers a method for studying many quenching conditions with a minimum of samples. The potential for developing a new understanding of the complex response of nonferrous alloys to processing conditions, especially quenching, will be presented. Examples of the properties measured on Jominy end quench specimens of aluminum and titanium alloys will be presented.
