Simplified approaches in Simufact



All simplified approaches are used to decrease the simulation time. But be aware that this also decreases the result accuracy. For different process types, Simufact welding offers different types or approaches to reduce the simulation time, like e.g. negligence of welding sequence, decoupling of the model or linear material models.

For arc welding, laser beam welding, electron beam welding and brazing the following approaches can be used:
• Shrinkage method (Linear material model, only shrinkage of weld seams is simulated.)
• Single shot solution for thermal cycle (Negligence of welding sequence.)

For resistance spot welding the following approaches can be used:
• Single shot solution (Negligence of welding sequence.)
• Mechanical solution only (Decoupling as no electrical or thermal simulation will be performed.)

• Thermal cycle (Decoupling as no electrical simulation will be performed. Can be used in combination with single shot solution to neglect the welding sequence.)

Also, other free and related tutorials are provided in the following links:
