TitleAnalysis of Thermal Behaviour of a Powder Bed in 3D printing
CategoryDiploma Work
Employeruniversity of Luxembourg
LocationLuxembourg, Luxembourg, Luxembourg
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, March 15, 2019
3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, includes a variety of
processes, through which a three-dimensional object is created. It enables 
manufacturing of complex and intricate geometries without many of the
constraints imposed by traditional manufacturing techniques. As this technology
advances and the costs of 3D printed parts continue to fall, AM will become a
more prevalent and viable engineering and business solution. Complementary to
experimental work, modelling of these complex processes is an important
alternative and is applied in the current study to investigate the laser beam
induced heat-up behaviour of a powder bed during selective laser melting or
sintering shown in the following figure. The analysis is carried out with the
XDEM simulation framework ( at the University of Luxembourg under
the supervision of Prof Peters in close collaboration with the industrial
partner AddUp ( 

The student should have a good understanding of thermodynamics and an
inclination towards numerical modelling and will receive a intensive training
for XDEM. Furthermore, one of the working languages English, German or French is
required and a willingness to work in an inter-cultural and international
environment. The prospective student is expected to analyse predicted results
under the influence of such as laser power or speed and document findings in a
thesis. The work is remunerated with app. 800 €/month.
