Welding Simulation in ABAQUS
This training package fully covers the various possible methods for welding simulation. Various methods in welding simulation include the use of Lagrangian methods, CEL method, and SPH method. Element birth and death, the use of subroutine DFLUX to apply the thermal effect, and how to exchange heat with the environment with FILM subroutine are used in this training package. Welding is done on different geometries including plates, joints, and pipes. It should be noted that in this training package, the famous equations used to apply heat such as Goldak equations based on the articles have been used. Welding is based on thermal analysis as well as thermal-mechanical coupling. Popular welding types including arc welding, Friction Stir Spot welding, Friction Stir welding, Explosion welding (EXW), and impact welding process are included in this training package.
