Deviation Analysis of Automobile Panels Welding Assembly Based on ANSYS
In order to control the deformation deviation of automobile panels welding assembly, the author analyzed the assembly process of spot welding, and used a simplified finite element analysis method. In this method, work-pieces’ deviations are reflected by equivalent stress, and welding deformations are simulated by the coupling nodes. The author called C++ application in ANSYS FEA software, using stress data files as the interface, and therefore solved the problem of applying initial stress to automobile panels.
