Abstract

Aim of the present work is to investigate mechanical and metallurgical characteristics of continuous wave CO2 laser welded dissimilar couple of AISI 304 stainless steel and commercially pure copper sheets in autogenous mode. Metallurgical analysis of the fusion zone has been done [...]

Abstract

The simulation of engineering problems is quite often a complex task that can be time consuming. In this context, the use of Hyper Reduced Order Models (HROMs) [...]

Abstract

This paper deals with the numerical simulation of friction stir welding (FSW) processes. FSW techniques are used in many industrial applications and [...]

Abstract

Hydraulic steel structures, especially lock gates play a significant role in keeping navigation traffic uninterrupted. After a few decades of operation, many of the welded joints may suffer various degrees of deterioration, primarily due to fatigue. To economically combining crack [...]

Abstract

The nature and distribution of residual stresses are invariably critical for fatigue life with dissimilar material joints often inducing high tensile residual stresses. A fatigue-resistant concept of weld cladding process pipelines, producing compressive residual stresses, is under [...]

Abstract

Simulation of the welding of two dissimilar materials, stainless steel and mild steel, has been carried out using finite element together with experiments to validate the method and better understand the transient temperature profiles and the stress distribution in a cladded pipe. [...]

Abstract

The potential to save trillions of BTU’s in energy usage and billions of dollars in cost on an annual basis based on use of higher strength steel in major oil and gas transmission pipeline construction is a compelling opportunity recognized by both the US Department of Energy (DOE). [...]

Abstract

"jats:p"Previous study carried out residual stress characterization for the welds of the high-temperature-section (superheater / reheater) lower headers of the bottom-supported heat-recovery steam generator (HRSG). Modeling the gas-tungsten arc, manual welding process [...]
