This paper summarizes the new developments in 3D simulation of resistance welding processes and the subsequent weld strength testing based on the predicted weld results and material properties after welding. Resistance welding simulations have been developed and applied for prediction of weld nugget formation in spot welding as well as projection welding with various material combinations. Microstructure and hardness distributions are also modeled for predicting the material properties in and around the weld zone after welding. Some examples are presented for industrial applications of 3D resistance welding simulations.
