    Xiaoyu Zhang1,2, Huizhong Zeng2, Shaohui Zhang2, Yan Zhang3,*, Mi Xiao4, Liping Liu2, Hao Zhou2,*, Hongyou Chai2, Liang Gao4

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 201-220, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029389

    Abstract Lightweight thin-walled structures with lattice infill are widely desired in satellite for their high stiffness-to-weight ratio and superior buckling strength resulting from the sandwich effect. Such structures can be fabricated by metallic additive manufacturing technique, such as selective laser melting (SLM). However, the maximum dimensions of actual structures are usually in a sub-meter scale, which results in restrictions on their appliance in aerospace and other fields. In this work, a meter-scale thin-walled structure with lattice infill is designed for the fuel tank supporting component of the satellite by integrating a self-supporting lattice into the thickness optimization of the thin-wall.

    Prediction of Melt Pool Dimension and Residual Stress Evolution with Thermodynamically-Consistent Phase Field and Consolidation Models during Re-Melting Process of SLM

    Kang-Hyun Lee1, Gun Jin Yun1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.66, No.1, pp. 87-112, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.012688

    Abstract Re-melting process has been utilized to mitigate the residual stress level in the selective laser melting (SLM) process in recent years. However, the complex consolidation mechanism of powder and the different material behavior after the first laser melting hinder the direct implementation of the re-melting process. In this work, the effects of re-melting on the temperature and residual stress evolution in the SLM process are investigated using a thermo-mechanically coupled finite element model. The degree of consolidation is incorporated in the energy balance equation based on the thermodynamically-consistent phase-field approach. The drastic change of material properties due to the variation… More >

    Periodic Lattice Porous Structure Produced by Selective Laser Melting: Process, Experiment and Numerical Simulation Analysis

    Jianrui Zhang1,2, Min Chi1, Bo Qian1,*, Zhijun Qiu2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.125, No.1, pp. 77-94, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.010518

    Abstract To accurately perform the coupled simulation of temperature field and stress field of complex parts and porous structures under the optimal manufacturing process parameters, three kinds of porous structures with different complexity were designed in this paper. Firstly, ANSYS additive software was used to conduct the stress/deformation simulation of the whole structure under different scanning strategies. Secondly, the optimal scanning strategy for different porous structures was determined, then the experimental preparation was performed, and mechanical properties of compression were tested and studied. The results show that the elastic modulus and yield strength increase with the increase of pole diameter/wall thickness.… More >

    Abstract In order to meet the clinical requirements of spine surgery, this paper proposed the exploratory research of computer-aided design and selective laser melting (SLM) fabrication of a bionic porous titanium spine implant. The structural design of the spinal implant is based on CT scanning data to ensure correct matching, and the mechanical properties of the implant are verified by simulation analysis and laser selective melting experiment. The surface roughness of the spinal implant manufactured by SLM without post-processing is Ra 15 μm, and the implant is precisely jointed with the photosensitive resin model of the upper and lower spine.

    Abstract The three-dimensional physical model of the randomly packed powder material irradiated by the laser beam was established, taking into account the transformation of the material phase, the melt spreading and the interaction of the free surface of the molten pool and the recoiling pressure caused by the material evaporation during the selective laser melting. Influence of the processing parameters on the thermal behavior, the material evaporation, the surface morphology and the densification behavior in the connection region of the molten pool and the substrate was studied. It was shown that the powder material underwent the transformation from the partial melting… More >

    Abstract During the selective laser melting process, a high-energy laser beam acts on the powder, a molten pool is rapidly generated and the characteristic parameters are constantly changing. Among them, temperature is one of the important parameters in the forming process. Due to the generation of splash particles, there will be defects in the microstructure, which will seriously affect the formation quality of the prepared parts. Therefore, it is necessary to study the relationships between the splash behavior, molten pool characteristics and product quality. The finite element simulation of the transient temperature field was performed by ANSYS software. Time-series images at… More >
