Characterization and Thermal Modeling of Laser Formed Ti-6Al-4V
MetadataShow full item record
A thermal model has been developed to assist in the prediction and interpretation of the as-processed microstructure. The model is used to explain that the microstructural evolution of the layer bands and gradient microstructure in layer n is due to the deposition of layer n+2. The difference in the two analyses of microstructural evolution based on microstructural observations and thermal model results are due to differences in the parameter sets used to build and model the deposit.
