Thermal analyses of girth welded joints of clads have been carried out using 2D and 3D finite element analysis (FEA) by using the engineering software Abaqus v.2016 (Dassault Systèmes). Transient temperature curves have been generated for different cladding thicknesses (of stainless steel and mild steel). The welding of the two dissimilar materials has been carried out in-house with the aid of a Tungsten Arc weld with dynamic measurement of the temperature profile in the vicinity areas of the welding track using high temperature thermocouples. Comparison of the measured temperature versus the simulation results shows close agreement.
