Model development of resistance spot welding on low carbon steel and advanced high strength steel using multiresponse DOE and FEM / Norasiah Muhammad

Muhammad, Norasiah (2015) Model development of resistance spot welding on low carbon steel and advanced high strength steel using multiresponse DOE and FEM / Norasiah Muhammad. In: The Doctoral Research Abstracts. IPSis Biannual Publication, 7 (7). Institute of Graduate Studies, UiTM, Shah Alam.


This project investigated the development of the weld zone in resistance spot welding (RSW) on similar and dissimilar material using various statistical methods and numerical simulation approach. Demands placed on dissimilar material joints have increased from various viewpoint such as lightweight vehicle structure, energy saving, high performance and cost saving. Due to steadily increasing price of material, a combination between DP 600 and low carbon steel can be seen as an alternative especially for the section which is not fully exposed to external load. Therefore, the RSW process on dissimilar material of DP 600 and low carbon steel is necessarily to be observed for mass production. For comparison purpose, this research was conducted for plate thickness of 1.2 mm of low carbon steel and 1.0 mm of DP600. In order to reduce the trial and error experiments, statistical methods were used throughout the investigation. An experimental design was started using a general 24 factorial design to determine which of the various parameters were important in response surface study. The significance of the welding parameters was obtained using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) to evaluate the relations existing between the important parameters and the response (radius of weld nugget and radius of HAZ). Optimization of the welding parameters (weld current, weld time and electrode force) to normalize weld nugget and to minimize HAZ size was then conducted using Central Composite Design (CCD) in Response Surface Methodology (RSM) and the optimum parameters were determined. Experiments were conducted according to the selected experimental design, followed by data analysis which included regression analysis and model adequacy checking…
