Abstract

We use single track laser melting experiments and simulations on Inconel 625 to estimate the dimensions and microstructures of the resulting melt pools. Our work is based on a design-of- experiments approach which uses multiple laser power and scan speed combinations. Single track experiments generate melt pools of certain dimensions. These dimensions reasonably agree with our finite element calculations. Phase-field simulations predict the size and segregation of the cellular microstructures that form along the melt pool boundaries for the solidification conditions that change as a function of melt pool dimensions.
