Development of Spot Weld Failure Parameters

February 22, 2013

Six EWI associates were recently published in Science and Technology of Welding & Joining.  Their article, “Development of Spot Weld Failure Parameters for Full Vehicle Crash Modelling,” is in the April 2013 issue.

In the article, the authors presented a cost- and time-effective process to create spot-weld failure parameters for failure models implemented in LS-DYNA.  The process includes a design-of-experiments approach, welding and testing, finite element modeling, statistical analysis, vailidation, and implementation.

EWI Authors:  Yu-Ping Yang; Jerry Gould; Warren Peterson; Fabian Orth; Paul Zelenak; and Wael Al Fakir.

EWI members can request the article from the EWI Library on the Member Central website.  If you’re not a member, consider joining.  EWI librarians offer members literature search and article retrieval services.  Find out about all the benefits of EWI membership.
