The basic problem of the numerical model’s quenching process is establishing the characteristics of the boundary conditions. The existing descriptions of the boundary conditions, which represent the parameters of equipment used in heat treatment processes, do not accurately reflect the actual process conditions. In the present study, the method of choice for superficial heat source parameters for TIG (tungsten inert gas) heating is modeled using artificial neural networks (ANN) and the finite element method (FEM). A comparison of the calculations obtained from the numerical model of non-steady state heat transfer with the results of the experimental studies is presented. The possibility of using ANN to compute the parameters of the boundary conditions for the heating treatment is analyzed. A multilayer feed-forward backpropagation network is developed and trained using value of temperature in the selected nodes obtained from numerical simulation. View Full-Text
