Numerical simulation for welded component testing and design
Recent Advances in Welding Simulation provides informative reference for mechanical engineers, structural engineers, fabricators, and manufacturers. An authoritative exploration of numerical simulation to support the design of welded components, this book covers residual stress, distortion simulation, friction stir welding, joint integrity, and more. Featuring discussion of the latest technology, techniques, and methods, this invaluable resource provides advanced insight into the challenging demands of welded joint design in today's applications.
Welding residual stresses and distortions simulated by the use of simplified methods; modelling of residual stresses at girth welds in pipes; nickel-base superalloy welding - models for residal sdtress, distortion and weldability; new capabilities of the software product SYSWELD for the prediciton of welding residual stresses in a thick section steel welds; friciton stir welding of aluminiumextrusions; integrity of welded joints in pressure vessels; a study of finite element meshing methods to be used in welding simulation for ship structures.
