### THERMOMECHANICAL MODELLING THE RESISTANCE WELDING OF PBSB ALLOY

ABSTRACT
The analytical modelling of the PbSb alloy resistance spot welding process has been developed on the basis of mathematical analysis of thermomechanical conservation laws. The numerical solution of partial differential equations, obtained by such modelling, has been achieved by the finite element method. Thermomechanical equilibrium equations are derived, including specific properties, typical for PbSb alloys. The paper utilizes the basic experimentally proven assumption, that the temperature fields govern all processes during welding. Full agreement is evident between the experimental and analytical data.
