This lesson covers the models of welding heat sources, focusing on the analytical solution of different heat sources associated with the welding process. It discusses the assumptions made in analytical solutions, such as representing the heat source as a point or line heat source. The lesson also explores the limitations of these assumptions in practical applications, leading to the need for models that consider distributed heat sources. It delves into the mathematical equations that can represent the distribution of heat in welding processes, and the geometrical considerations that need to be made. The lesson further discusses different types of heat source models, including circular disk, ellipsoidal, and hybrid models, and how they can be applied to different welding processes. It also touches on the concept of adaptive heat source models and their advantages in certain scenarios.

- Analytical solutions of welding heat sources often assume the heat source as a point or line, which may not be feasible in actual practice.
- Different heat source models, such as circular disk, ellipsoidal, and hybrid models, have been developed to better represent the distribution of heat in welding processes.
- The distribution of heat in a welding process can be represented using mathematical equations, taking into account the geometry of the process.
- Adaptive heat source models offer computational advantages and can overcome certain inherent difficulties in defining the parameters of welding heat sources.
- The total heat input to a welding process can be estimated by integrating the heat flux over the surface or volume of the heat source.
