In this study, pressure finite element welding simulations has been carried out. The welding model is a butt filled weld. The objective is to study the effect of pressure on welding stress of high strength steel at different time periods. From the study we can find that no matter at the first half of welding or and the last half welding or at the cooling time apply the load have little effect to improve the stress. Only under the entire welding process that the distribution of residual stress

The results show that the residual stresses of the welding workpiece under specific pressure throughout the welding process decreased by 16.2% when compared with weld group without load applied. The maximum residual stresses of weld group without load applied are more than with the specific pressure load plates 120 MPa. But under other times putting the load cannot be improved. This paper just presents a simulation results that have a certain guiding significance.
