Thermo-Mechanical Analysis of Effect of Weld Preparation on Residual Stress Formation Using Finite Element Analysis
Rajshekhar B A , & Dr H V Ramakrishna
Welding is the major manufacturing process in engineering applications. Proper welding process helps in safety and longer life to the components. In the present work, finite element analysis has been carried out to find the residual stress formation due to various welding process. Edge weld, smooth weld, V-type weld and U-type weld analysis has been carried out to find the temperature distribution and residual stress formation. The variation of material properties has been considered for change the temperature.
