<p class="AMSmaintext1"><span lang="EN-GB">The success of quenching process depended heavily on the suitable choice of a quenching media. In this work, a numerical simulation of the process of quenching C-ring sample of 100Cr6 steel was discussed. The results showed an overview of the phase transformation, residual stress, distortion and hardness on the specimen throughout quenching process to the end. The simulation results also revealed that the sample is not cracked and the highest residual
