How can ANSYS simulate Flame Hardening of steel (gradient in yield strength)?

    • Ult0944

      Effectively flame hardening creates a gradient yield strength, on the surface of steel. 

      Basically two flat ended cylinders pressing together under extreme loads.  Annealed material will yield at the contact surface, but after flame-hardening, there's no yielding under the same extreme loading.

      How would you simulate this gradient in yield strength?
