Many industrial and academic interests concerning the additive manufacturing processes are developed in the last decades. As one of the most promising technique of additive manufacture, the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) has been valued by both industry and academic. However, it remains that several phenomena are still not well understood in order to properly model the process and propose quality improvement of tracks and parts made.

The goal of this Ph.D. project is to develop a framework of numerical simulation in order to simulate the SLS process in polymer powder bed, meanwhile understanding multiple

physical phenomena occurring during the process and studying the influence of parameters on the quality of final product. This work will extend the areas of application of the technology for high performance products, which promises to be very innovative; especially if achieved through the processing optimization based on such multiphysics models and simulation.
