Abstract

The present study investigates the analysis of welded aluminum plates. For the same, test specimens were made of aluminum plates by joining them with the help of welding. Experimentation was carried out for different load condition on the four welded specimens. The experimentation was performed on plates of material Al 6061-T6 whereas the filler material used for welding used was Al 4043. The plates were joined by the GTAW, and square butt type was used for the welding purpose. The analysis of aluminum welded plates was carried out experimentally and by using ANSYS software. In the experimentation, specimens were firstly tested by nondestructive testing methods, and then destructive tests like tensile and bending tests were carried out on digital Universal testing machine. The software analysis is concerned with Finite Element Analysis of the specimen model in ANSYS Software. The results obtained from experimentation and from software analysis by using ANSYS were then compared and found approximately same.
