How to simulate laser drilling process?

Dear all, who might have any experience to simulate the laser drilling process with Simscale? Thank you very much!
Best, Fan

Hi @yangfanhh!

That is currently not possible on our platform as this would require basically four components of which we have two implemented so far.

  • Heat Conduction (available)

  • Laser Pulse (possible to simulate \rightarrow see this project: FEA - Circular Welding Analysis

  • Melt ejection (missing feature)

  • Evaporation (missing feature)

What you can do is to put your request into the “Vote For Features” section - I am sure that not only you are interested in this type of simulation :+1:
