|Abstract:||Prediction and control of thermal distortion is particularly important for the design and manufacture of multiply stiffened welded structures. This study aimed to develop and experimentally validate a comprehensive simulation tool to predict distortion, with particular emphasis on out-of-plane deformation generated in double-sided fillet-welded attachments. Simulation was used to optimise the relative positions of a twin-arc configuration, to give minimum out-of-plane deformation consistent with reasonable production time for single stiffener, double-fillet attachments. The critical buckling load of the structure was approached and exceeded as the arcs were brought closer and simulation allowed the influence of this factor to be determined.|
