  • Title: Dynamic Electrical Resistance in Workpieces during Resistance Spot Welding
  • Abstract: Electrical resistance, which includes bulk resistance and contact resistance between two workpieces,plays an important role in electrical circuit system, and various manufacturing systems. In resistance spot welding the effects of local electrical resistance on transport variables, cooling rate, solute distribution,and nugget shape after solidification are responsible for micro structure of the fusion zone. The present model accounts for transport processes induced by electromagnetic force, heat generation and contact resistances at the faying surface and electrode–workpiece interfaces and bulk resistance in workpieces. Contact resistances are composed of film and constriction resistances,as functions of hardness, temperature, electrode force, surface conditions, etc. The computed results show that regardless of high film resistance, molten pool growth and transport processes are independent of film resistance due to delayed response time of local electric current in the early stage. A decrease in constriction resistance, however,delays nugget formation, enhances convection and solute mixing during cooling period.Factors affecting the variations of film resistance and constriction resistance are also presented.
