DANTE® is the State-of-the-Art in heat treatment simulation software, promoting improved component and process design in heat treatment.
DANTE® is a set of user subroutines used in conjunction with Ansys or Abaqus finite element (FE) software that predicts in-process and final distortion, stress state, hardness, and metallurgical phase fractions in carburized, nitrided, or through-hardened steel components. User friendly interfaces have been developed for both FE software packages to aid the user in DANTE® model setup.
DANTE® couples a multiphase constitutive model directly with diffusive and martensitic phase transformation kinetics models. With DANTE®, metallurgists, process engineers, heat treaters and designers can predict the evolution and final stress state, volume fractions of metallurgical phases, part distortion, and the final hardness.
Link DANTE with Ansys and Abaqus Finite Element Solvers to build, solve, and post-process heat treatment models
