Structural-Thermal Analysis of Welded Joints Using the ANSYS Workbench Platform
This paper presents a summary of a live demonstration for a numerical simulation of laser welding process using Ansys Workbench platform. The main steps of this simulation are: creating the geometric model, mesh generation, defining contacts, applying initial conditions and boundary conditions, defining thermal loads, general setting and solving the transient thermal analysis and finally the coupling of this analysis with a structural one to predict stresses due to the thermal field generated by the thermal analysis. After solving, the results are visualized and interpreted.
