Prediction Laser Sealed Advanced Ceramic Coatings Dimensions by Using Finite Element Model and Computational Method
A three dimensional FE modeling of the laser surface modification is presented. The design capabilities of the ANSYS (11) software were employed for this purpose. The model calculates the dimensions of melting zone and heat affected zone. Model simulations are compared with experimental results that showed very good agreement. A one dimensional model in V.B language was presented too. The model based on conduction of heat in one dimension neglecting the other losses of heat. The results of VISUAL BASIC were compared with experimental results which showed a very good agreement. The two methods were compared with each other to showing which method have a good prediction compared with experimental results in calculating of fusion zone and heat affected zone "HAZ".
