Paper Title:
Effect of Initial Gap on Tensile Strength of Resistance Spot Welded Joints
  Abstract

It has been proved that the initial gap has obvious influence on nugget formation, but little works focused on the effect of initial gap on the tensile strength of resistance spot welded (RSW) joints. In this paper, a 3D FE model was built for solving this question. The results show that, even though there are some fluctuations of weld diameter and tensile strength of RSW joints with initial gap, the tensile strength and weld diameter of welded joints with initial gap are still larger than that of welded joints without gap, which confirm that the influence of initial gap on tensile shear strength is little significant. The computation results agree well with experiment.
