In many applications including part forming, bonding and hardening, the heat distribution over time within the part being heated is essential. Without this knowledge the process is carried out in an ad hoc manner. Ultimately, this lack of knowledge will be an added cost to the product in terms of quality, time to market, or excess material and energy costs.
In addition to simulating the part, designing the environment in which the part is heated may also be important. For induction heating, the shape of the coils can play a major part in the heating process. In addition, the heating equipment can be driven at different frequencies which will also affect the quality and efficiency of the heating process. To cater to these problems, a finite element or a combination of finite element methods is required. The real question is to understand the process and find the level of simulation required to produce useful results.
