Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A computer-aided system for simulating the weld metal solidification crack has been developed by which a welding engineer can carry out the welding solidification crack simulation on the basis of a commercial finite element analysis software package. Its main functions include the heat generation calculation of the moving arc, the mesh generation calculation and the stress-strain distribution calculation with element rebirth technique.
