This article outlines a general approach to develop a coupled electrical-thermal-mechanical analysis for the resistance spot welding process. It provides information on the discretization of sheet-electrode geometry and distribution of contact resistivity along the sheet-sheet and electrode-sheet interfaces. The distribution can be estimated based on the discretized geometry used for the numerical modeling. The article also details the results obtained from this modeling.
