The modeling and simulation of the welding process has been of main concern for different fields of applications. Most of the modeling of such a problem has been mainly in 2-D forms that may also include many sorts of approximation and assumptions. This is due to limitations in the computational facilities as the analysis of 3-D problems consumes a lot of time. With the evolution of new finite element tools and fast computer systems, the analysis of such problems is becoming in hand. In this research, a simulation of the welding process with and without metal deposition is developed. A new technique for metal deposition using element movement is introduced. It helps in performing full 3-D analysis in a shorter time than other previously developed techniques such as the element birth.
