This paper deals with the optimum condition for spot heating to correct the thin buckled panel caused by welding. Heat input models for each flame torch tip (500, 800, 2000) with standoff were establish using FEA to evaluate the temperature distribution of the heated plate and verified by experiment. With the heat input models developed for each torch tip, the effect of heating variables including ramp ratio(R) and standoff on the radial shrinkage and angular distortion was identified using FEA. Based on the results, the proper conditions of spot heating with air cooling were established. The amount and distribution of the radial shrinkage by spot heating were formulated as the function of heating variables and in-plane rigidity of the plate.
