Abstract

In this study, an inverse algorithm based on the conjugate gradient method and the discrepancy principle is applied to solve the inverse heat conduction problem with a dual-phase-lag equation for estimating the unknown space- and time-dependent laser-induced heat generation in a gas-saturated porous medium exposed to short-pulse laser heating from the temperature measurements taken within the medium. Subsequently, the powder particle temperature distributions in the porous medium can be determined as well. The temperature data obtained from the direct problem are used to simulate the temperature measurements. The effect of measurement errors on the estimation accuracy is also investigated. The inverse solutions are justified based on the numerical experiments in which two different forms of heat generation are estimated. Results show that the unknown laser-induced heat generation can be predicted precisely by using the present approach for the test cases considered in this study.
