The gradients of interfacial tension induced by local heating led to Marangoni convection, which had a significant effect on surface formation and the process of mass transport in the laser nitriding of uranium. An experimental observation of the underlying processes was very difficult. In present study, the Marangoni convection was considered and the computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis technique of FLUENT program was performed to determine the physical processes such as heat transfer and mass transport. The progress of gas-liquid falling film desorption was presented by combining phase-change model with fluid volume function (VOF) model. The time-dependent distribution of the temperature had been derived. Moreover, the concentration and distribution of nitrogen across the laser spot are calculated. The simulation results matched with the experimental data. The numerical resolution method provided a better approach to know the physical processes and dependencies of the coating formation.
