Comparisons between dilerent models for thermal simulation of GTAW process125Comparisons between different models for thermalsimulation of GTAW processXu Yanli and Wei Yanhong徐艳利,魏艳红”Abstract Tuo mathematical models are built to study the efets of the fluid flowo on thermal distributions of ithe gas tungstenare welding( GTAW) proces. One model is buased on the heat conduciity equation, wohich doesn' t take the efs of the fluidflow into account, and the other couples the laminar heat transfer and fluid flow in the weld pool, which is called laminarfluid flow model in shor. The simulated rsuls of the two models show that the patten and velocity of the fluid flow play acritical role in determining the thermal distribution and the weld pool shape. For the laminar fluid flow model, is highesttemperature is 400 K lover than that calculated with the other model and the depth of is weld pool is shallower too, twhich ismainly caused by the main vortex of the floww in the weld poo.Key words thermal distribution, gas tungsten arc welding, heat transfer and fluid flow0 Introductiontive representation of heat transfer and fluid flow phenome-In are welding processes, final microstructure andna in the weld pool[3-61.mechanical properties of the weldments mainly depend onIn order to know the effects of the weld pool on thethe thermal cycle undergoing during the heating and cool-workpiece thermal distribution, and get a quantitative rep-ing process.
