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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
