Abstract

By simulating the welding process, potential non-conformities can be detected before serial production is launched, which can significantly reduce operation costs. There are many different possibilities for modeling the process, therefore it is very important to choose a method that will ensure high accuracy of the solution in a relatively short time. The article will present the influence of various methods of modeling the welding process in the CAE environment on the obtained deformation results. For the given geometry and type of weld, the thermal deformations have been simulated based on the Finite Element Method. Several analyzes were carried out using different process modeling approaches (mesh type). Finally, a comparison of the results for the discussed cases is presented to determine the influence of the parameters used on the deformation results obtained.
