Welding simulation, distortions minimization and automatic optimization of the welding sequence for naval applications

  1. 1. VIRFAC | Powered by Morfeo Virtual Manufacturing Made Real Welding simulation of large naval components and welding sequence optimization. Virfac® Welding March 21, 2016 Dr. Laurent D’Alvise CEO & co-founder www.geonx.com sales@geonx.com
  2. 2. Configuration: - Naval stiffened panel - 15 welds in the transverse direction - 4 welds in the longitudinal direction - W1 – W19: nominal welding sequence. NOMINAL WELDING SEQUENCE Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved
  3. 3. AUTOMATIC WELDING SEQUENCE OPTIMIZATION Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com Initial sequence First Intermediate result Best result © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved
  4. 4. OPTIMIZED WELDING SEQUENCE – N°36 Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com New configuration: - Distortions are minimized - W1’ – W19’: optimized welding sequence n°36 (intermediate) - Calculation time < 2 hours (laptop). © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved
  5. 5. DISTORTIONS BEFORE & AFTER OPTIMIZATION N°36 Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com Nominal welding sequence Max. displacement = 53 mm © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved Optimized welding sequence Max. displacement = 18 mm (65 % reduction)
  6. 6. OPTIMIZED WELDING SEQUENCE – N°192 Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com New configuration: - Distortions are minimized - W1’’ – W19’’: optimized welding sequence n°192 (best) - Calculation time = 12 hours (laptop). © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved
  7. 7. DISTORTIONS BEFORE & AFTER OPTIMIZATION N°192 Virfac® Welding | www.geonx.com Nominal welding sequence Max. displacement = 53 mm Optimized welding sequence Max. displacement = 16 mm (70 % reduction) © 2012-2016 GeonX – All rights reserved
