Three-dimensional analysis of the thermophoretic particle deposition in the OVD process Hong, Gi-Hyeok; Gang, Sin-Hyeong;
Three-dimensional conjugate heat transfer and particle deposition on a circular cylinder in the OVD process are numerically investigated. Flow and temperature fields are obtained by an iterative method, and thermophoretic particle deposition is simulated. Effects of the heat conduction in the cylinder, the rotation speed of the cylinder, and the traversing speed of torch on the deposition are studied. Effects of variable properties are also included. As the conductivity of the cylinder decreases, particle deposition rate and deposition efficiency greatly decrease due to the reduced temperature gradient. The rotation of the cylinder has no significant effect on the deposition due to the small diameter of the cylinder and low speed of rotation. Since the increase of the torch speed keeps the surface low temperature, the particle deposition increases with the traversing speed.
