Paper Abstract

During a spot laser welding process, a correlation between the generated sound and the obtained welding characteristics can be observed by preliminary experimental studies. This paper aims at understanding and explaining this correlation through a numerical finite element approach. A thermal-hydraulic model predicting the size of the capillary and the melted zone has been coupled with a simplified model of the sound propagation in the surrounding air. Different assumptions are then discussed and validated by confronting the numerical predictions with experimental data.
