Abstract : The argon-tungsten arc image furnace was developed as a facility for testing materials under very high thermal flux densities in either a vacuum or controlled atmospheres. Commercially pure tungsten, AISI 4130 steel in the as quenched fully heat treated condition and 2024-Te aluminum alloy, were subjected to the maximum thermal flux for varying lengths of time and changes in microstructure and hardness observed.
