Theoretical Simulation of Temperature Field of Coaxial Powder Stream in Laser Cladding
Theoretical models of temperature field are presented from Beer-Lambert law. This paper uses Beer-Lambert law to calculate powder flow on the absorption of energy and applies the law of the conservation of the energy to calculate the temperature of powder stream. This paper analyzes the effect of the various factors on the temperature field of powder flow. Temperature field of powder stream is measured by CCD camera. Finally the comparison of the theoretical results and the experimental results indicates the accuracy of the theoretical calculation.
