Effect of Impinging Jet on Heat Conduction in Workpieces Irradiated by a Moving Heat Source
A three dimensional conductive field is analyzed and solved by means of the COMSOL Multiphysics code. The investigated work-pieces are made up of a simple brick-type solid. A laser source with combined donut-Gaussian distributions is considered moving with a constant velocity along motion direction. The solid dimension along the motion direction is assumed to be infinite or semi-infinite, while finite width (2ly) and thickness (s) are considered. Thermal properties are considered temperature dependent and the materials are considered isotropic. Surface heat losses toward the ambient are taken into account. Several convective heat flux values on the upper surface, with corresponding Biot numbers, and Peclet numbers are considered with negligible radiative heat losses.Results are presented in terms of profile temperatures to evaluate the effect of impinging jet.
