Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a solid-state welding technique that involves the joining of metals without filler materials. A cylindrical rotating tool plunges into a rigidly clamped workpiece and moves along the joint to be welded.
Submodeling is a finite element technique that allow users to obtain more accurate stress and strain results in a particular region of a model which is a small area of concern in comparison to whole model.
The wear damage is one of the crucial factors of wheel damage in the rail industry. In this project, some material has been added to a wheel with a pre-defined thickness and the amount of residual stresses were investigated. This part was done with ANSYS and an APDL code was generated.
