EM: Resistive Heating, Resistance Spot Welding, & Battery Modeling Applications



This class pro­vides a de­tailed overview of the re­sis­tive heat­ing solver’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties with a spe­cial fo­cus on re­sis­tance spot weld­ing and bat­tery ap­pli­ca­tions. This course is rec­om­mend­ed for at­ten­dees who want to use the EM solver for spe­cif­ic and ad­vanced ap­pli­ca­tions, such as bat­tery mod­el­ing, re­sis­tance spot weld­ing and heat­ing. The course does not re­quire any pre­req­ui­site as far as EM knowl­edge is con­cerned but goes in depth in­to the in­ner work­ings of the re­sis­tive heat­ing solver.
