Paper Title:
Numerical and Experimental Investigation of Pulsed Laser Welding of Hastelloy C-276 Alloy Sheets
  Abstract

In this paper, a three-dimensional finite element model is developed to compute thermal phenomena of 0.5 mm thick Hastelloy C-276 alloy sheets during pulsed laser beam welding (PLBW). Temperature-dependent thermal properties of Hastelloy C-276 alloy, effect of latent heat of fusion, and the convective and radiative boundary conditions are taken into account in the model. The space-time temperature distributions in a butt-joint weld produced by the PLBW process are predicted from the beginning of welding to the final cooling. The heat input to the model is assumed to be a double ellipsoid heat source. The finite element calculations are performed by using ANSYS code with the parametric design capabilities. Experiments were carried out to determine the temperature evolution during welding and to measure the cross section profile of the weld bead. By comparing the simulation results with the corresponding experimental findings, it is found that they are in a good agreement. The validity and applicability of the numerical simulation model are confirmed.
