Abstract

The thermal effects of fibre laser surface treatment of a ZrO 2 engineering ceramic were studied using finite element analysis (FEA). Temperature increases on the surface and in the bulk of the ZrO 2 during fibre laser processing were measured. FEA was then used to model the flow and distribution of the radiated heat resulting from the fibre laser surface treatment. Data obtained from a thermogravimetry-differential scanning calorimetry (TG-DSC) analysis and the FEA model predictions was used to map the phase transformations in the ZrO 2 resulting from fibre laser surface treatment. The mapping revealed that the fibre laser surface treatment generally resulted in a phase transformation of the ZrO 2 from the M state to a mixture of T+C during fibre laser irradiation and from T+C to T followed by the M state during solidification.
