Modelling of laser micro-processing techniques

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Chapter 7 focuses attention on a case study of laser surface glazing (LSG), which is a widely used process for improving surface hardness and wear resistance of steel. The chapter presents the development of a simple and reliable model of LSG for metallic materials using a finite element method. The model describes both 2D and 3D transient thermal energy distribution as a result of LSG with cylindrical geometry. The model predicts the temperature distributions, heating, cooling rates, and depth of the modified zone.
