ANALYTIC MODELING OF HEAT FLOW AND STRUCTURAL DISTORTION IN SHIP STRUCTURES PRODUCED BY WELDING

This report describes the results of an investigation of the welding analysis capabilities of available computer programs. Analysis programs currently available at Electric Boat Division are also reviewed and compared with the programs developed at MIT. These programs are utilized in the welding analysis of a double-vee grooved unrestrained steel plate. Comparison of calculated transient temperatures and distortions with experimental data are made.
