Modeling of Resistance Spot Welds:From Process to Performance 1999-01-3211

This paper addresses the modeling issues of resistance spot welds. The state of the art modeling techniques on weld process simulation, weld property prediction and weld engineering performance evaluation are presented. First, weld process simulation is performed using the incrementally coupled thermal-electrical-mechanical analyses. The resulted weld nugget size, weld residual stress and weld material property distributions are then used in determining the static performance of a single weld coupon. Comparisons with experimental measurements are presented as validations. Results generated from this single weld coupon is then used in the simulation of dynamic crush mechanism of a spot welded single hat section.
