Dr. Stuart Brown presented a webinar titled “Multiphysics Modeling of a Welding Process” on June 21, 2018. Modeling a complex thermomechanical process, such as welding, requires the inclusion of several coupled physics phenomena. The webinar described how multiphysics modeling enabled a simulation of a valve welding process, which was needed to determine how a toxic leak developed. Dr. Brown showed how to create the model in the COMSOL Multiphysics software, described the actual toxic release event, and discussed the testing that was done to correlate with the numerical simulation results. The webinar concluded with a Q&A session. The one-hour webinar was sponsored by Electronic Design/Machine Design and COMSOL. A recording of the webinar is now available online.
