Calculation of physical processes of different welding methods

  Research emphasis ISF of RWTH Aachen University Research emphasis on welding process simulation  

The simulation group at ISF is working on the research and modelling of different welding processes. Two different goals are pursued: On the one hand, to gather extensive physical understanding of each welding process and, on the other hand, to apply this knowledge with mathematical-numerical methods for the programming of user-friendly simulation software which allows it to calculate results in few minutes. These tools allow the engineer to calculate weld geometries, heat distribution and temperature curves without any time-consuming training courses and to use this information afterwards in other simulation tools as input parameters.



    • Simulation of arc welding processes: Shielding gas, submerged arc, hybrid
    • Simulation of beam welding processes: Laser, electron beam, hybrid
    • SimWeld – Engineering software which is suitable for everyday use
    • Calculation of parameters and boundary conditions for material and structure simulation
