Welding, Thermal Stresses


Welding is widely used in all the fabrication processes for the development of complex structural components. The weld distortion is one of the major constraints which cannot be completely avoided irrespective of material type and thickness. 3D transient thermal finite element model is established to measure the thermal stress and weldments. The temperature stress modeling is one of the complex processes which utilize the weld parameters and material properties at higher temperatures. A Suitable heat flux is to be given as input for the developed model to analyze welding process. The temperature distribution and stress analysis have been carried out with developed model by using the temperature dependent material properties of SS316 using ANSYS.
