Abstract

This paper implements a thermo-mechanical model to simulate the laser treatment effects on a cold-sprayed titanium coating and aluminum substrate. The thermo-mechanical finite element model considers the transient temperature field due to the laser source and applied boundary conditions, using them as input loads for the subsequent stress-strain analysis. Numerical outcomes highlighted the relevance of thermal gradients and the presence of thermally-induced stress-strain fields responsible for promoting damage in the coating. View Full-Text
