Part 1 Principles: Understanding residual stress and distortion in welds: An overview; Welding heat transfer; Thermal–metallurgical–mechanical interactions during welding; Measuring temperature during welding; Modelling the effects of welding. Part 2 Applications: Measuring welding-induced distortion; Modelling distortion and residual stress during welding: Practical applications; Mitigating welding residual stress and distortion; Control of buckling distortion in plates and shells.
Measurement techniques for characterisation of residual stress and distortion have improved significantly. More importantly the development and application of computational welding mechanics have been phenomenal. Through the collaboration of experts, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject. It develops sufficient theoretical treatments on heat transfer, solid mechanics and materials behaviour that are essential for understanding and determining welding residual stress and distortion. It will outline the approach for computational analysis that engineers with sufficient background can follow and apply. The book is useful for advanced analysis of the subject and provide examples and practical solutions for welding engineers.
