Simulation Investigation the Effect of Heating-Lines on Tensile Mechanical Properties of Sheet Metal after Laser Scanning
In this study, tensional mechanical properties of sheet metal with heating-lines after laser scanning are investigated based on the thermal-microstructure-mechanical model. The phase transformations, during laser scanning of sheet metal, are calculated by coupling the thermal history from finite element analysis with a phase transformation kinetic model. The flow stresses of material are obtained from the constitutive relationship of the phases based on the mixture strain hardening laws. The results show that the influence of the heating-lines number on tensional mechanical properties of material is obvious. The mechanical properties are related to the distribution of microstructure in heat affected zone after laser scanning.
