The nugget size gets larger as welding current gets higher. To confirm the relationship between nugget size and maximum tensile shear strength, the diameter of the nuggets “D” is measured after the tensile shear test, as shown in Fig. Fig The tensile shear strength value, F max, increases as the nugget diameter increases. 5. Mechanical properties of resistance spot welds in high strength steels. It is generally agreed that the shear strength of welds in HS steels (UTSshear strength increases linearly with increasing plug diameter.

process parameters on response variables. Input parameters such as welding current, weld time, electrode force and electrode geometry effects on the response variables such as tensile strength, hardness, nugget size. In any automobile, there are spot welds which demonstrate the level significance of the resistance spot welding. It is necessary to adjust the weld nugget size through changing the welding process parameters. Based on the finite element analysis, there are several methods controlling the nugget diameter as following. The welding current can be adjusted with the purpose of increasing the nugget size close to mm in order to guarantee the welding quality.

In this study, the effects of resistance spot welding conditions on the nugget diameter, which was one of the major influencing factors of resistance spot weld joint strength, was modeled by a machine learning method which had been proposed by the authors in recent years. To a certain extent, weld time and amperage may be complementary. The total heat may be changed by adjusting either the amperage or the weld time. Heat transfer is a function of time and the development of the proper nugget size requires a minimum length of time, regardless of amperage Figure.3 Tensile-shear strength as a function of weld time

Influence of processing variables on nugget size and shear strength of a resistance spotweld by J. Brogan Download PDF EPUB FB2

The tensile–shear strength of spot weld, which is often associated with the effective area of nugget to load, is an important index to welding quality. So, investigation on the relations between the strength of spot weld or nugget geometry and process parameters is the key to solve the RSW problem of galvanized steel by: surface condition etc.

the quality is best judged by nugget size and joint strength. This study presents a systematic approach to determine effect of process parameters (electrode force, weld time and current) on tensile shear strength of resistance weld joint of mild steel using Taguchi method.

A general introduction for principle, working and. The type of fracture (interface vs. pullout) was explained in terms of the base-metal yield strength, sheet thickness, weld nugget size, and shear strength of the weld metal. View Show abstract.

Factors affecting the tensile shear are the most welding current of 12, amp., welding time of 8 cycle and electrode force of kN.

were tensile shear of kN. The nugget size was maximum. In the parent material, however, tensile strength is higher than shear strength. The lowest material strength is found near the center of the weld where shear yield strength is about 50% lower than that of the parent material.

the quality is best judged by nugget size and joint strength. The weld size obtained by conventional LSW was about mm smaller than that of mm by novel LSW process. The weld nugget size is one of the main factors, which significantly affect the tensile shear strength of the welds.

The improved tensile shear strength with novel LSW process can be attributed to the enlarged weld nugget size. mechanical strength properties. Resistance Spot Welding, the weld quality is best judged by Nugget Size and Joint Strength.

It is important to select the welding process parameters for obtaining optimal size of Weld Nugget. This does not ensure that the selected welding process parameters can produce the optimal weld nugget for that. Optimization of parameters leads to the desired weld quality. Quality and strength of the spot welds are defined by the quality of the weld nuggets [35].

The quality of a resistance spot weld is best judged by the nugget size, heat affected zone (HAZ) and joint strength [36]. Thin XT4 sheets were welded using Multi-Ring Domed resistance spot weld process.

• Resultant RSWs have the highest tensile strength in HAZ and the lowest in weld nugget. • New equation was derived to calculate minimum nugget size without interfacial failure.

• Pull-out and eyebrow fracture modes were observed depending on fatigue load. Quality of the weld is determined by the size of the weld nugget and joint strength. The size of the weld nugget and joint strength depends upon the selection of the welding process parameters.

Normally, the welding process parameters are selected based on. The rule base knowledge to predict the nugget size, tensile shear strength and peel strength of RSW is given in Table 1. Boriwal / Materials Today: Proceedings 4 () – Table.

due to automatic and fast process. The major factors controlling this process are current, time, electrode force, contact resistance, property of electrode material, sheet materials, surface condition etc.

the quality is best judged by nugget size and joint strength. This study presents a systematic approach to determine effect of process.

Process parameters and their influence of resistance welding can be analyzed by its impact on response variables. Effect of process parameters is evaluated under several quality measures such as tensile strength of joint, size-shape of welded joint, hardness of weld, microstructural changes and weld quality.

Resistance Spot Welding (RSW). have been found to increase the weld nugget growth and the tensile shear strength until the occurrence of expulsion [2]. Therefore suitable combination of these parameters, called the welding schedule, is required to achieve a spot weld with the desired weld characteristics (nugget diameter, tensile shear strength and indentation) [3].

Effect of process variables (electrode pressure, holding time, welding current, and welding time) on low-carbon steel resistance spot welds performance has been investigated in this paper. Wang et al. established a finite element model for resistance spot welding of DP steel, and the nugget formation process was investigated.

The simulative result for nugget size was obviously bigger than that of the experiment under a large welding current, although they were well fitted under a. The contact resistance at the Figure 3 Tensile­shear strength as a function of current and electrode force for (a) and (b) 3 mm thickneses Bayramoglu 16/4/03 pm Page faying surface is critical since weld nugget growth is initiated at the interface of the two metal sheets.

The brazing material must “wet” to each part and have a lower melting point than the two workpieces. The process requires a longer heating time (2 to ms) at low weld energy. The result is a bond with excellent tensile strength. The shear strength and peel is poor. Advantages & Disadvantages of Resistance Welding Advantages.

Among various defects formed in resistance spot welds of advanced high-strength steels (AHSSs), shrinkage void (cavity) is the least addressed topic. Although cavities are formed in numerous sizes and shapes, their influence on the strength and failure modes is yet to be investigated.

The present study examines the effect of the cavity size and position on the peak tensile shear load. In this study, the influence of production-related gaps on the shear tension strength and fatigue performance was investigated for resistance spot welded TRIP steel HCT, Furthermore, the local strain distribution in shear tension test was calculated by the digital image correlation technique (DIG), The static shear tension strength was found to be almost independent of gaps up to 3 mm.

Abstract: This paper presents an experimental investigation for the Tensile Shear (T-S) strength and Nugget diameter of resistance spot weld by using Taguchi method. An experimental study is conducted under various levels of process parameters.
