Transversed Residual Stress Analysis on Multipassed Fillet Weld 2D-Using FEM and Experiment


Article Preview

In this project, the residual stress due to multipassed welding process at the fillet weld will be studied using 2D Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation method and experimental investigation. Due to the extensive capabilities and dedicated tools for the simulation of welding, including material deposit via element activation or deactivation and predefined or customized moving heat sources, SYSWELD 2010 was chosen as the FEA software. The material with a thickness of 9 mm was structural steel S355J2G3 for simulation and low carbon steel for the experiment. The clamping condition was selected to obtain the best relationship between simulation and experiment by using Strain Gage. The model was dedicated to multipassed welding using the robotic welding system
