A Study On Weld Distortions Of A Bus Body Side Frame

Welding is considered as the most efficient, dependable and economical means of fabrication to join metals permanently. Distortion is frequently encountered as a result of the welding process that adversely affects the dimensional accuracy of the part members. This paper presents the bus body side frame analysis for evaluating welding distortions. It includes the variation in the thermal deformations by varying the type of location and clamping supports Keywords— Finite Element Simulation, Weld Deformation.
