Managing Welding Induced Distortion Comparison of Different Computational Approaches Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2015 Published by Elsevier Ltd. This study aims to assess and compare three different approaches of inherent strain method for prediction of welding induced distortion; inherent strain, inherent deformation and shrinkage force approaches. The FEA was performed on T-fillet welded structures. The results are compared with elastic-plastic FEA and experiments and shows a qualitative good agreement. It is found that the inherent strain and inherent deformation approaches are suitable to predict transverse shrinkage and transverse bending whereas to predict the longitudinal shrinkage and longitudinal bending the shrinkage force approach is more suitable.
