SORPAS 3D Tutorial 4 – Peel Strength test of weld nugget

In this tutorial you see how to make a welding simulation and how to make a Peel strength test of the weld nugget using SORPAS® 3D. You have to test a lot of different parameters to find out if the formed nugget is acceptable for a certain application. Very often, welding engineers investigate the parameters … Continue reading

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 2 – Tensile Shear Strength Testing

A lot of different parameters have to be testted 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 different mechanical tests are used such as tensile strength test, cross tension test or hardness measurements. These tests … 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
