Laser Spot Weld Analysis Using ANSYS Software
In this paper, the authors are going to analyze the BIW (Body In White) using ANSYS software under the static loading. The BIW consist mainly two part i.e. top hat and flat plate which are joint together by using laser spot weld. Spot welds made by resistance spot welding are used extensively in automotive engineering. More recent material, equipment and welding process developments to extend electrode-life, enhance weld quality and reduce power consumption are making this process increasingly attractive to automakers.
