Computer Simulation of Thin Sheet Gas-Metal-Arc-Welding
Search this Article
Calculation models included in simulation programs are contributing substantially towards the completion of empirically determined knowledge Calculation models are presented which analyse electrical, thermodynamical and hydrodynamical effects on the GMA-welding process. These models are used in a simulation program for thin sheet GMA-welding process. The MAGSIM program simulates the GMA-welding process calculating the weld shape and the thermo cycle at various points. A graphical display of the cross sections of shape and seam and a three-dimensional view visualise the simulation results. All calculations are available as number values too. The result is rated according to the European Standard EN 25817. Other objectives allow the statistical prediction of quality at welding parameters with tolerances. The automated look for optimised welding parameters for a specific welding task is possible as well.
