Lilyana S. Koleva, Asya Lozeva, Elena G. Koleva
In this paper the electron beam welding of Ti–6Al–4V thin plates is simulated by implementation of a moving linear heat source model. The simulation results are used for estimation of regression models for the dependencies of molten pool geometry characteristics on the electron beam welding process parameters: electron beam power, welding velocity and the plate thickness. The optimization of electron beam of welding is considered in terms of minimization of the fusion zone geometrical parameters length, width and transverse cross-section area.
