Numerical analysis of the straightening process of thin plate structures by elastic FEM based on the inherent strain method
Welding distortion is practically an expected feature in shipbuilding, with a few exceptions; when thick plates are used, for example. Nowadays, the trend is to use thinner plates in order to reduce weight, aiming to reduce ...
Analysis and prediction of welding distortion in complex structures using elastic finite element method
The Elastic Finite Element Method based on the inherent strain theory is used to predict the welding distortion of ship structures. In addition, a method to predict welding distortion of complex structures by using elastic ...
