Thermal fluid coupled analysis is essential to enable an accurate temperature prediction in additive manufacturing. However, numerical simulations of this type are time-consuming, due to the high non-linearity, the underlying large mesh size and the small time step constraints. This paper presents a novel adaptive hyper reduction method for speeding up these simulations. The difficulties associated with non-linear terms for model reduction are tackled by designing an adaptive reduced integration domain. The proposed online basis adaptation strategy is based on a combination of a basis mapping, enrichment by local residuals and a gappy basis reconstruction technique. The efficiency of the proposed method will be demonstrated by representative 3D examples of additive manufacturing models, including single-track and multi-track cases.
