Abstract

In this paper a numerical simulation of laser hardening process is presented. The Finite Difference Method (FDM) was used to solve the heat transfer and the carbon diffusion equations for a defined workpiece geometry. The model is able to predict the thermal cycle into the target material, the phase transformations and the resulting micro-structures according to the laser parameters, the workpiece dimensions and the physical properties of the workpiece. The effects of the overlapping tracks of the laser beam on the resulting micro-structures is also considered. The initial workpiece micro-structure is taken into account in the simulation by a digitized photomicrograph of the ferrite perlite distribution before the thermal cycle. Experimental tests were realized on a C43 plate and the good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results is shown.
