laser irradiated molten metal pool
Hello All,

I am working on the flow analysis of laser irradiated molten metal pool.i first created a cone shaped volume and gave liquid metal properties to it.i carried out the analysis with the laser beam applied to the model created and got the results for how the flow in the pool takes place.i have used segregated,unsteady state first order implicit type of solver with laminar flow.but i want to show how exactly the flow takes place in the pool by sprinkling some kind of a powder on the top surface of the pool from where the laser beam is projected.i tried using species transport model, multiphase model and discrete phase model.but i am unable to get how exactly how the mixing is taking place in the pool.i dont know if my approach is correct or if am doing anything wrong.if anyone knows how to do this,i would be grateful to them. Thank you, kiran
