Effects of nozzle geometry parameters on powder stream structure in laser aided deposition process
"The Laser Aided Manufacturing Processes (LAMP) developed at the University of Missouri-Rolla is used to fabricate three dimensional metal and ceramic parts. The part material is supplied in the form of powder in the size of microns and the laser is used to melt the powder onto a substrate...The deposition process depends on various process parameters. One of the important parameter[s] is powder flow structure and mass flow rate of the powder. The powder stream structure depends on the nozzle geometry in use. This thesis describes the influence of different nozzle geometry parameters on the powder flow mode."--Abstract, leaf iv.
