Ortuondo Basterretxea, Asier


CFD Modelling and Simulation

Mazarredo, 14. 48009 Bilbao Basque Country - Spain


Asier Ortuondo joins the group of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) to collaborate in the tasks of modelling and simulation of the processes involved in the manufacture of metal parts (nickel-based alloys) by techniques of additive manufacturing of pre-deposited dust, also known as Selective Laser Melting. In addition, the main tasks during the initial phase of modelling will be the following: 1- Review of the existing literature in the modelling of the SLM process. The different models will be compared, analysing what are their hypotheses and the main difficulties in their resolution. The main challenge will be to study how to solve the couplings between the different models. 2- Simulation of the process of fusion of dust by the effect of the laser beam and creation of a molten bath. To do this, commercial software will be used, studying the most appropriate to solve the chosen mathematical model
