Abstract

"Laser cladding is an additive manufacturing process in which a laser generates a melt-pool on the substrate material while a second material in a powder or wire form is injected into that melt-pool. Among all laser manufacturing processes, laser cladding offers the most extensive variety of possibilities to alter a component at its surface. Despite immense potential and advancements, the process model of microstructure evolution and its coupling with macro parameters of the laser cladding process has not been fully developed. To address this issue, a process model of microstructure evolution has been studied by utilizing a phase-field method"--Abstract, leaf iii.
