Residual Deformation Measurement of Laser Weldment Using the Laser Interferometry
In this paper, the residual deformation induced in laser welding processing was studied by using the moiré interferometry and a novel high-temperature specimen grating technology. The experimental results indicate that the heat-affected zone of laser welding is a narrow strip. There exists great residual strain gradient in the heat-affected zone, especially great residual shear strain gradient. It implies that great residual stress and stress gradient exist near the welded seam. The relationship between the size of the heat-affected zone and the changes of the technology parameters were discussed in the experiments, which can supply some reliable experimental data for optimizing processing technology.
