Hollomon-Jaffe parameter

The Hollomon-Jaffe parameter, or HP, describes the effect of a heat treatment at a temperature for a certain time.


The effect of the heat treatment depends on its temperature and its time. The same effect can be achieved with a low temperature and a long holding time, or with a higher temperature and a short holding time.


In the Holloman-Jaffe parameter, This exchangability of time and temperature can be described by the following formula:

H_p = \frac {(273.15 + T)}{1000} \cdot (C + log(t))

This formula is not consistent concerning the units; the parameters must be entered in a certain manner. The argument of the logarithmic function has the unit minutes. The Hollomon parameter itself is unitless and realistic numeric values vary between 15 and 21.
