One of the most popular tests to determine the hardenability of steels is the Jominy-End-Quench-Test. Moreover this test is useful for simulation testing, too. In this paper the determination of heat transfer fluxes over the quenched surface as well as over the peripheral surface is described. The result is used for simulations of the Jominy-End-Quench-Test for two melts of SAE 52100 (100 Cr 6). One of these was taken from literature, one was used for experiments in IWT. Though transformation behaviors differ in an extreme way, the Jominy-End-Quench-Test can be simulated for both steels with good agreement between simulation and measurement.
