The simulation software dedicated to the welding processes


TRANSWELD® is a software devoted to provide an industrial solution in order to predict the thermo-mechanical  behaviour during the welding of an assembly.

TRANSWELD® is the outcome of research projects conducted in collaboration with the Center for Material Forming (Cemef MINES ParisTech) and several industrial partners.

TRANSWELD® is a 100% predictive numerical tool.  The main results output from the simulation are:

  • Stresses and deformation by the end of the process
  • The temperature evolution during the process (solidification)
  • The shape of the weld bead (for the process with filler material)

In order to optimize the computation time, together with the guarantee of a high results accuracy, TRANSWELD® uses an automatic remeshing technique, fully transparent for the user.

The graphical user interface is 'process-oriented' and is easily accessible by every kind of users whatever their core-business is (R&D, production, …etc.).

In mid-term, welding processes such as brazing should be implemented into TRANSWELD®.
