  1. 1. CFD Simulation of Fluid Flow During Laser Metal Wire Deposition using OpenFOAM : 3D printing

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Jennifer Lundkvist; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The focus of this work was to simulate the fluid flow within a melt pool geometry, during an additive manufacturing process, implementing the CFD software OpenFOAM version 1806. Two separate models were created and run during this work, the first using a temperature mapping from a finite element (FE) model and the second being a free-standing model with Gaussian distributed laser beam striking down on the top surface.
