Mechanism and Prediction of Laser Wet Cleaning of Marble Encrustation


During the removal of encrustation from marble with 355 nm laser pulses, the effects of the thin liquid layer covering the encrustation are experimentally and numerically investigated. The working mechanism of the liquid layer is analyzed. A two-dimensional axisymmetric model is proposed to simulate the changes of the temperature, liquid volumetric fraction… (More)
