Paper Title:
Effect of Argon Ambient Gas Pressure on Plume Expansion Dynamics
  Abstract

In this paper we present a numerical modeling of a nanosecond laser pulse interaction with a titanium target. We investigate the vapor plume formation and the influence of the ambient gas pressure on plume expansion dynamics. The vapor plume formation depends on the results of the heat transfer in the solid target modeling. The solid-liquid phase change is modeled by a two dimensional approach using an enthalpy formulation. The resulting plume expansion in the argon background gas is studied using the species transport model. The algebraic equations are discretized by the finite volume method implemented by Fluent CFD software [1]. The calculation results of plume expansion velocity, density, temperature and degree of ionization in the plume are presented.
