With the rapid development of the oil industry-level demand for steel, the performance of oil steel pipe has put forward higher requirements. Induction heat treatment of steel pipe can improve performance and save cost, so it has been widely used in the steel pipe manufacturing industry. In order to reduce the number of trial-error procedures in plant which usually are long and costly, numerical simulation has been revealed as an important tool in designing the induction heating system. In this paper, the steel pipe temperature distribution in induction heat treatment is simulated considering the material properties. It is shown that the simulation results of the object temperature in good agreement with the different technology demands, which can provide useful information to optimize the whole induction heating process.
