Computational Modeling of the Inert Gas Flow Behavior on Spatter Distribution in Selective Laser Melting
In the selective laser melting (SLM) process, the spatter, introduced by moving melt pools, can contaminate the build region and potentially reduce the part quality. A well-designed inert gas flow system can help to effectively remove the process emissions. Therefore, it is critical to understand the flow characteristics as well as the interactions between gas flow and spatter. In this study, a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model for the SLM gas flow system has been developed to simulatedoi:10.26153/tsw/17366 fatcat:pgc76bcycrdsnift5su5l4cbzm
