Paper Abstract

Laser surface cladding with argon blown powder1 is a process whereby a powder stream is blown into a laser-generated melt pool. The mechanisms in this melt pool which determine the opidmum operating conditions for low dilution, zero porosity and a continuous clad track are discussed. A dilution parameter and a porosity parameter are derived and compared to experiment. Some factors affecting their values are identified.
