Coupled welding with shells

This example shows the process of creating a weldingseam by means of welding a square profile onto a plate. Beside welding this case shows the use of thermal thin shells for the profile an the plate, which do not consider a thermal gradient over the shell thickness (check example ASDF for more about thermal thick and thin shells). The heat source of the welding device is generated with *BOUNDARY_THERMAL_WELD_TRAJECTORY. The constitutive model *MAT_THERMAL_CWM is used for the welding seam.
