Three Dimensional Monte Carlo Simulation of Grain Growth in HAZ of Stainless Steel SUS316


Article Preview

The stainless steel SUS316 grain growth process in heat affected zone (HAZ) of gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process is studied with Monte Carlo (MC) simulation. The heat transfer and fluid flow model provides the thermal history and thermal distribution of the weldments for MC grain growth simulation. The grain growth evolution is simulated both in isothermal and in HAZ environment. The simulating results show clearly the “thermal pinning” effect on the grain growth evolution in HAZ compared with the isothermal results.
