A Fluid-Dynamic Numerical Model for the Selective Laser Melting of High-Thickness Metallic Layers
Cordovilla Baró, Francisco; Garzón, Miguel; Muñoz, Diego Alejandro; Diaz, Javier; García Beltrán, Angel and Ocaña Moreno, Jose Luis (2017). A Fluid-Dynamic Numerical Model for the Selective Laser Melting of High-Thickness Metallic Layers. In: "LiM 2017 International conference on Lasers in Manufacturing", 26 / 29.06.2017, Munich - Germany. pp. 1-10.
The productivity in the selective laser melting (SLM) process is directly related to the thickness of the powder bed that is applied repeatedly, in each increment, in the growth of the consolidated material in the additive manufacturing process. Although most of the relevant phenomena (limited diffusivity associated with particle contact, phase changes, surface tension gradients associated with Marangoni convection, or even back pressure) are considered in models with small bed thicknesses (approximately 20 μm and 40 μm), in the case of large thicknesses (between 100 μm and 200 μm) these factors strongly influence the size and shape of the melt pool, which leads to a non-trivial geometry of the consolidated material.
The present work proposes the use of the arbitrary Lagrangean-Eulerian method (ALE method) to solve the thermal and Navier-Stokes equations in the framework of a free-motion discretization to simultaneously predict the evolution of space-time temperature and dynamics. associated melting bath. It allows to use a continuous domain to represent the powder bed, which, instead of a particle model approach, is advantageously compatible with realistic process parameters, where the laser covers long trajectories. The model was validated with experimental data using Inconel as work material, showing a good degree of fit.
Topology optimization applied to the design of cooling channels for plastic injection

In this document, topology optimization is applied to design cooling channels in a structural steel mold. The problem was implemented in COMSOL Multiphysics, where two solid physics, heat transfer and mechanics, came together. The optimization goal is to maximize conduction heat flux into the mold and minimize warping when plastic is injected. To find an optimal geometry for this objective, a method based on density was implemented in the non-linear program (NLP), with which feasible results were found.
