EISBN: 978-1-62708-174-0
... Abstract This article describes the significance of the three variables that affect the resistance spot welding process: welding current, electrode force, and welding time. It presents the effects of weld spacing and surface preparation on weld quality. The article elaborates the typical...

... Abstract Resistance spot welding (RSW) is a process in which faying surfaces are joined in one or more spots by the heat generated by resistance to the flow of electric current through workpieces that are held together under force by electrodes. This article discusses the major advantages...

..., and increased electrode pickup. Greater deformation under the welding force causes an increase in the contact area and variations in the distribution of current and pressure. Therefore, welding of aluminum alloys in the annealed condition or in the softer tempers is not recommended without special...

.... Throughout the welding process, the molten metal remains enclosed by the surrounding solid material supported by the electrode force. Thus, the process poses a heat-transfer-dominated problem that influences and is also affected by the electrical current flow and thermomechanical deformation along...

... surfaces are joined in one or more spots by the heat generated by resistance to the flow of electric current through workpieces that are held together under force by electrodes. The contacting surfaces in the region of current concentration are heated by a short-time pulse of low-voltage, high-amperage...
