Abstract [en]

The fluid flows in molten pools during arc welding are important factors. These in turn influence in overall heat and mass transfer, which determine the mechanical properties and quality of the weld fusion zone. Here, modelling results are presented concerning the time dependent weld pool flow and temperature in gas tungsten arc welding (GTA) of the difference type of stainless steels. It is proved that the temperature fields are strongly affected by the convection at the weld pool’s surfaces. With the stainless steel type 304 (low sulfur content 0.0005 weight % and high sulfur content 0.0139 weight %), the actual chaotic time dependent melt flow is obtained with a fully time dependent model. In those cases, the fluid flow in the weld pool is highly complex and it influenced the weld pool`s depth and width. For the 645 SMO steel, which has an extremely low sulfur content and low conductivity, the chaotic fluid flows did not appear. The calculated geometry of the weld fusion zone and heat affected zone were in good agreement with the experimental results, both with or without chaotic fluid flows.

Abstract [en]

A parallel finite element code with adaptive meshing was developed and used to study three dimensional, time-dependent fluid flows caused by thermocapillary convection as well as temperature and dopant distribution in fusion welding and floating zone crystal growth.

A comprehensive numerical model of the three dimensional time-dependent fluid flows in a weld pool had been developed. This model considered most of the physical mechanisms involved in gas tungsten arc welding. The model helped obtaining the actual chaotic time-dependent melt flow. It was found that the fluid flow in the weld pool was highly complex and influenced the weld pool’s depth and width. The physicochemical model had also been studied and applied numerically in order to simulate the surfactant adsorption onto the surface effect to the surface tension of the metal liquid in a weld pool.

Another model, a three dimensional time-dependent, with adaptive mesh refinement and coarsening was applied for simulating the effect of weak flow on the radial segregation in floating zone crystal growth. The phase change equation was also included in this model in order to simulate the real interface shape of floating zone.

In the new parallel code, a scheme that keeps the level of node and face instead of the complete history of refinements was utilized to facilitate derefinement. The information was now local and the exchange of information between each and every processor during the derefinement process was minimized. This scheme helped to improve the efficiency of the parallel adaptive solver.
