Paper Title:
Simulation of Temperature Field of Metal Thin Wall Parts during Laser Direct Deposition Rapid Prototyping

The simulation of temperature field during laser direct metal deposition(DMD) were researched. The finite element model of single track cladding, multi-track overlapping and multi-layer deposition were established. The temperature field was simulated by ANSYS software basing on life-and-death element and cycle algorithm. Under different process parameters, the temperature and temperature gradient on the cross-section of sample were simulated during single- track scanning, multi-track overlapping and multi-layer deposition. Temperature cycle curves at different position were analyzed and were consistent with actually value. Both simulation and experiment showed that heat accumulation during continuous forming greatly affected the temperature of molten pool.
