Comprehensive thermal solution procedures (CTSP) are developed to predict temperature history during laser forming process. The CTSP can provide not only fast and accurate results, but also many useful features, such as convection boundary conditions and distributed water cooling schemes. By means of interface through the virtual fabrication technology (VFT®) software, the CTSP gives direct temperature results for FEA stress/distortion analysis.
