Gas metal arc (GMA) welding process has been chosen as a metal joining technique due to the wide range of usable applications, cheap consumables and easy handling. The welding quality is generally controlled by the welding parameters. To achieve a high level of welding performance and quality, a suitable algorithm is required to fully understand the influence of welding parameters on bead geometry in the GMA welding process. In this paper, we develop an intelligent system in GMA welding processes using MATLAB/SIMULINK software. Based on multiple regressions and a neural network, the mathematical models are derived from extensive experiments with different welding parameters and complex geometrical features. Graphic displays represent the resulting solution on the bead geometry that can be employed to further probe the model. The developed system enables to input the desired weld dimensions and select the optimal welding parameters. The experimental results were proved the capability of the developed system to select the welding parameters in GMA welding process according to complex external and internal geometrical features of the substrate.
In the early days, arc welding was carried out manually so that the weld quality can be totally controlled by the welder ability. The welder, when welding, can directly monitor the flow pattern in puddle and make immediate adjustments in welding parameters to obtain a good weldability. To consistently produce high quality of weldability, arc welding requires welding personnel with significant experience. One reason for this is the need to properly select welding parameters for a given task in order to get a good weld quality which identified by its micro-structure and the amount of spatter, and relied on the correct bead geometry size. Therefore, the use of the control system in arc welding can eliminate much of the “guess work” often employed by welders to specify welding parameters for a given task . In addition, of specific importance is the development of mathematical models that can be employed to predict welding parameters about arc welding process with respect to the workpiece and bead geometry to develop a robotic welding system. Many efforts have been carried out development of various algorithms in the modeling of arc welding process using various technologies , ,  and . Multiple regression techniques were used to establish the empirical models for various arc welding processes  and . However, the regression techniques cannot describe adequately the arc welding process as a whole. One of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, a neural network as a tool for incorporating knowledge in the manufacturing system is massively interconnected networks of simple elements and their hierarchical organizations. These processes are characterized by welding parameters due to the lack of adequate mathematical models to relate these parameters with bead geometry  and . While numerical techniques such as finite element method (FEM) also have several limitations. The potentially viable processing routes are numerous and, therefore, various intelligent systems are necessary to identify optimal processing parameters . Now, it is possible to make this selection with the help of a computer, and complex simulations become an effective memory for choosing the welding parameters. Also, arc welding requires a steady hand to keep the electrode at a constant distance from the parts being welded. At the same time that the hand has to move at constant speed, it has to adjust for the distance, as the electrode shortens. This operation requires hundreds of hours of practice, burning expensive electrodes. There are many systems that simulate a welding machine and permit significant saving in consumables. The selection of welding parameters for a given welding process is based on experimental methods and human qualifications according to fabrication standards and empirical rules . Recently, a European Social Funded Project (ESFP) has established a real-time computer package “Robotic Teaching System” for using virtual reality (VR) technique to teach pendant programming of the robot and learn the skills required to move the robot to safe position and re-starting safely and efficiently when clearing a welding problems . Ozcelink developed and demonstrated the simulation and animation package for a GMA welding process using the numerical software due to easily use software that effectively control techniques applied to it . However, this software could be applied to control welding process, not to predict bead geometry depending on welding parameters. This paper represents the development of an intelligent system to obtain detailed information about the bead geometry in relation to the welding conditions, and to provide the welding engineer with sufficient information to design the most economic and reliable welded component for a given set of the fabrication conditions. Using factorial experimental design, two multiple regression models and a neural network model were developed. Commercial software, called MATLAB/SIMULINK was chosen due to take care of the technicalities involved in numeric simulation, window and menu creation, and graphing. It also describes how the system is modeled and how it is employed to improve the skill-based components of welder proficiency in the welding environment.

1.An intelligent system to select welding parameters on a given bead geometry has been designed and developed. This system consists of menus, sliders and plotting features that enable the intuitive push-button interface and the informative animations to be created easily. 2.The developed system integrates a neural network model and two multiple regression models for the prediction of bead geometry factors including bead width, bead height, penetration depth, bead penetration area, bead reinforcement area, length of bead penetration boundary, length of bead reinforcement boundary, penetration shape factor, reinforcement shape factor, bead total area and bead dilution. 3.The performance of the developed system has been tested experimentally for certain welding conditions for a particular bead dimensions. The experimental data were proved a clear correlation between welding parameters and the weld bead dimensions, and showed the two dimensional (2D) geometrical features. The neural network model is capable of making bead geometry prediction of the experimental values with reasonable accuracy. In this work, the developed neural network model can be proposed for real-time quality control based on observation of bead geometry and for on-line welding process control.
