Abstract:

Experiments to assess the usefulness of weld simulation techniques for understanding phase transformations in the laser cladding of nickel aluminum bronzes showed all weld zones could be successfully simulated using a thermomechanical simulator. Insights into phase transformations were shown to be possible by combining metallography with dilatometry.
