Understanding how residual stresses develop during a typical rim spray quench and subsequent tempering operation is a fundamental objective necessary to gain knowledge of how wheels behave when under service loads. In this study, we have used specially modified and validated ANSYS software to calculate plastic deformations as they develop during the heat treatment process. Plastic deformations, including creep, were determined to follow stages which were both dependent on time of quench and depth from the taping line. Residual stresses developed from these deformations are also discussed.
