Automatic Welding Heat Source Calibration

In partnership with Optimal Computing, GeonX is developing a new utility module in Virfac® Welding which allows the user to easily and automatically calibrate parameters of an equivalent heat source. Using a workpiece macrograph and/or temperature plot, Virfac® provides an optimized set of parameters for representing the best suited heat flux for modelling the welding process. The methodology is using an inverse analysis based on the powerful optimization engine of Xtreme software coupled with Virfac® solver Morfeo®. This new tool is planned to be released in the next version of Virfac®.
