Abstract

The laser surface modification process, as described using pre-placed powder, is typified by a relatively diffuse energy input from a laser beam to metal powder residing on the surface of a metal substrate. Based on this description, a model representing the laser deposition process using pre-placed powder has been constructed. In the computation, special attention is given to the interaction of laser radiation with the powder bed. Initial results of simulations under a relatively wide variety of conditions indicate the utility of the model for improving the basic understanding of the laser deposition process.
