Fracture Mechanics Finite Element Residual Stress Analysis (FERSA): Simulation of Weld Residual Stresses
The Numerical Simulation of Welding Processes is an effective tool for detailed planning and optimizing of welding. Residual stress and distortion in structures caused by welding can be calculated by means of numerical simulation based on the finite element (FE) method. The impact of welding on the residual stresses of the component can be determined fast and cost-efficiently compared to experimental test arrangements.
