Abstract: Fusion simulation is one of the key techniques used in designing and producing electrofusion joints for gas distribution and in evaluating fusion joint integrity. This paper describes the results of numerical simulation of the thermal fusion process, using the finite element method. A nonlinear heat transfer computer program was used to obtain the temperature profile of an electrofusion joint at fusion. I t was found that the temperature experimentally measured at the fusion interface by insertion of a thermo…
