Kabir, I. R. & Naher, S. ORCID: 0000-0003-2047-5807 (2021). Thermal and thermomechanical modelling of laser melting processing techniques. In: Issa, A. & Brabazon, D.

Chapter 7 focuses attention on a case study of laser surface glazing (LSG), which is a widely used process for improving surface hardness and wear resistance of steel. The chapter presents the development of a simple and reliable model of LSG for metallic materials using a finite element method. The model describes both 2D and 3D transient thermal energy distribution as a result of LSG with cylindrical geometry. The model predicts the temperature distributions, heating, cooling rates, and depth of the modified zone.
