Grahic Jump Location
Algorithm for (a) recovery/recrystallization, and (b) phase transformation constitutive modeling (index j denotes the jth phase)
Grahic Jump Location
Geometry of workpiece and coordinate system
Grahic Jump Location
Typical temperature history of points on the scanning path along the thickness direction from FEM results (AISI 1012 steel)
Grahic Jump Location
Typical heating and cooling rate on the top surface along the scanning path (X=40 mm, and Y=0 mm, and Z=0.89 mm) from FEM results. Note: positive value as cooling rate, and negative values as heating rate
Grahic Jump Location
SEM micrographs of the cross section perpendicular to the scanning path, showing the hardened (dark-colored, no melting involved) zone below the laser scanned top surface of AISI 1012 steel under the conditions of (a)P=400 W,V=25 mm/s and (b)P=800 W,V=50 mm/s (grain refinement is seen in the region surrounded by dashed lines)
Grahic Jump Location
Isothermal temperature contours from FEM results on the cross section normal to the scanning direction when laser is scanning under the conditions of (a)P=400 W,V=25 mm/s, and (b)P=800 W,V=50 mm/s (half of the cross section is simulated due to symmetry). The dotted lines the extent of the darkened areas in Fig. 5 and are used as the non-equilibrium lower transformation temperature A1ne. No melting is involved.
Grahic Jump Location
Superposition of cooling time history of laser forming from FEM results on CCT curve of AISI 1012 steel 28
Grahic Jump Location
Detailed SEM micrographs of AISI 1012 steel after laser forming under the condition of P=800 W, and V=50 mm/s (a) primarily martensite structure within the hardened zone (x2500) and (b) microstructure around the boundary between the hardened (dark colored) and untransformed (light colored) zone (x700) (also see Fig. 5)
Grahic Jump Location
Y-axis plastic strain and peak temperature (both on the laser scanned top surface) with the Y-axis extent of the grain refined zone (Fig. 5(b)) of 1.26 mm to estimate the critical plastic strain
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of numerical bending angle history w/ and w/o microstructure consideration (MS) with experimental measurements in 10-scan laser forming. Note: FEM computes 1000s for each scan including cooling.
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of experimental multiscan bending angle with numerical results w/ and w/o microstructure consideration (MS)
Grahic Jump Location
Detailed view of the first two scans from Fig. 10 (MS-microstructure consideration)
Grahic Jump Location
Parametric studies of single scan bending angle (experimental and numerical results w/ and w/o microstructure consideration (MS)) (a) vs. scanning velocity, and (b) vs. laser power
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of numerical results of Y-axis stress history w/ and w/o microstructure consideration (MS)
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of yield stress from numerical modeling w/ and w/o microstructure consideration (MS) with experimental yield stress measurements (samples are scanned for 2, 4,[[ellipsis]], 10 times, respectively)
