Abstract


This paper introduces two electron beam absorption algorithms for a three-dimensional thermal free surface lattice Boltzmann method simulating electron beam melting processes. The algorithms use a state-of-the-art volume of fluid free surface method of the lattice Boltzmann multi-distribution approach to handle the interaction between the electron beam and the material. Modeling the electron beam gun properties, such as absorption and energy dissipation, is explained in detail. Special emphasis is given to an implementation in a distributed and parallel environment due to the high computational costs of three-dimensional simulations. Finally, a thorough validation for the beam absorption behavior against the analytical solution is proceeded and a concluding example in a powder bed shows the capability of the approach to simulate and support understanding the electron beam melting process. © 2013 The Authors.
