A steady state model of TIG welding process was developed by using Smart Weld application in order to predict the temperature distribution and the effect of process parameters on weld pool during the TIG welding operation of 304 stainless steel. The planning of simulation runs has been performed in accordance with the Taguchi L9 design with two factors, each three levels. The process parameters considered are weld speed and input power during TIG welding. Multiple linear regression analysis is performed in order to analyze the effect of process parameters on length, width and depth of weld pool during TIG welding. Mathematical relationships were also established between input and analysis parameters. This study indicates that the input power is the most significant parameter.
