Abstract

A two-dimensional, quasi-static, inverse heat conduction problem (IHCP) is implemented to investigate the absorption efficiency of surface coatings in laser surface hardening process. The analysis of IHCP includes the utilization of the method of direct sensitivity coefficient and the measurement of interior temperatures nearby the laser heating surface. The results shows that the estimation of surface absorptivity generally agrees with that observed by experimental works. It is realized that the different kinds of coating make influences on the surface absorptivity as well as surface temperature significantly. Furthermore, the power density and scanning speed of laser beam to control the quality of surface hardening may be determined based on the informations of heat flow in the workpiece.
