Adaptive Finite Element Mesh Construction for Optimal Design of Spot Welding Park, Jang-Won; Chae, Su-Won; Lee, Tae-Su;
A finite element interface system for the design of optimal spot welding locations has been developed. In order to find out the optimal locations of spot welding points, iterative finite element an alyses are necessary, and thus automatic generation of finite element model for the structures with spot welded pointsis required. In this interface system, quadrilateral shell elements are automatically generated for finite element analysis of spot welded structured, which employs a domain decomposition methodand adaptive mesh(h-method).
