A three-dimensional non-linear coupled field finite element model of the seam and skip welding induced temperature distribution and distortions in T-welded plates has been carried out in this paper. The results of finite element analysis were compared with those obtained by the coordinate measuring machine. The finite element analyses overestimated the distortion magnitude for larger plates, but underestimated the distortion magnitude for the small plate. The use of a planned welding sequence can reduce welding distortion.
