Paper Abstract

The role of convection in controlling laser melted pool geometry such as pool shape, undercut, and ripples; defects such as variable penetration, porosity, and lack offusion; and properties such as homogeneity has been studied by a number of researchers. This paper reviews the state-of-the art research in this area.
