PDF (PhD thesis) - Doctoral Thesis


the influence of the powder material and the main processing parameters on geometrical features and dilution of the clads is investigated and discussed. Physical and analytical model that allow the explanation of the process and the prediction of the clad geometry and dilution is discussed. Using these models, useful tools for cladding operators and engineers are proposed. The energetic balance of the process is presented. Energetic redistribution in laser cladding process is analysed in detail, and quantification of process efficiency and energy losses is given. The influence of the processing parameters and the chemical/physical properties of the materials is considered throughout the various experiments performed. Some selected properties of the coating produced in different processing conditions are analysed. In specific, the variation of the chemical composition of the clad due to substrate dilution is considered, and its effect on the characteristics of the coatings is discussed.
