Frequency Domain Uncertainty Modeling and Quantification of the Laser Metal Deposition Process
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a growing class of manufacturing processes where parts are fabricated by repeated addition of material. Many of these processes show great promise for the production of complex, functional parts for use in critical applications. One such process, Laser Metal Deposition (LMD), uses a laser and a coaxial blown metal powder source to produce functional metal parts. However, it has been demonstrated that the LMD process possesses complex two-dimensional dynamics which, when not appropriately accounted for in the modeling and control stages, can lead to build failures. Additionally, even when the two-dimensionality of the process is accounted for, modeling and process uncertainties can lead to degraded performance or instability. Here, in the context of a control oriented model of the LMD process developed previously, process and modeling uncertainties are modeled and quantified in the frequency domain.
