Micro-Laser Assisted Machining: Numerical Simulations and Analysis of the Thermal Effects on Silicon Carbide

Abstract

Abstract Various 2-D numerical simulations were carried out using the commercial software AdvantEdge Versions 5.2 and 5.3 to model ductile mode micro-Laser Assisted Machining (μ-LAM) of Silicon Carbide (4H-SiC). The cutting tool is a single point diamond. The workpiece material (SiC) is heated locally by a laser beam, which passes through the diamond tool… (More)
