Arc spot welding simulation

A simple finite difference simulation package to simulate heating and cooling of a block of steel due to a arc-spot welding. The Igor Pro user interface allows the user to set the parameters of the welding arc and processing parameters and also some boundary conditions for the problem.

The reference for the finite difference method is given in the following reference.
