Abstract: The suitability of Grossmann and lumped heat capacitance (LHC) methods for estimation of quench severity of nanofluids, brine solutions and a laboratory detergent based medium was investigated. The study involved the assessment of the effect of section thickness of the probe on heat transfer coefficients for different quench media. Computer aided cooling curve analysis during quenching of type 304 stainless steel probes was carried out. The measured thermal history data were used to estimate heat transfer coefficients by Grossmann and LHC methods. The LHC method based on a 10 mm diameter stainless steel probe was found to be applicable for characterising media having quench severity less than 20 m-1. Although Grossmann method is based on the concept of average heat transfer coefficient, it can be used for quench media having varying severity of quenching. Grossmann method is found to be more sensitive to the effect of section thickness on heat transfer. 2011 IHTSE Partnership.
