3D Case 3 – Cross Tension Strength Testing

A lot of different parameters has to be tested regarding if the formed nugget is acceptable for the certain application. Parameters welding engineers often investigates are the mechanical properties of the nugget. To measure the mechanical properties of the nugget, different mechanical tests are used such as tensile strength test, cross tension test, hardness measurements … Continue reading

3D Case 1 – Creating a 2-sheet spot weld model

This tutorial demonstrates how to build a 3D model with one spot weld and 2 sheets. To demonstrate this case simple, no change of materials and process parameter is done, we use default settings. The example provides an excellent overview of building a model. It demonstrates how to build a model and adding contact interface. … Continue reading
