abstract = "The effect of the volumetric energy density (VED) on the keyhole formation, microstructural evolution and associated mechanical properties of AlSi10Mg fabricated by selective laser melting (SLM) has been systematically investigated. The results indicated that three melting modes could be distinguished during the laser melting process, corresponding to different VED ranges, i.e. conduction mode (<50 J mm-3), transitional mode (~50–65 J mm-3), and keyhole mode (>65 J mm-3). A high VED not only produced keyhole defects and hydrogen pores, but also generated two types of molten pool, i.e. a general shallow molten pool (GSP) and a keyhole-induced deep molten pool (KDP). The GSP was mainly consisted of an α-Al matrix, with ~30 µm grains size, and enclosed by a ~500 nm eutectic Si cellular network. The grain size of the KDP was less than 15 µm, and it has both a finer Si network (~200 nm) and nano-scale Si particles. No preferential crystallographic orientation could be observed within the KDP, while a strong texture along<111>orientation was exhibited in the GSP. These were responsible for the different mechanical properties of the SLM parts under different melting modes. The related mechanisms of the GSP and the KDP formation are comprehensively discussed and a correlation between the microstructure and the mechanical properties is also outlined. ",
