This paper presents a dynamical non linear model of the spatial time-dependant evolution of A3 point during a particular sequence of resistance spot welding in steel material. The model is based on a solution to the heat equation, expressed in cylindrical coordinates inside the joint area, and when the source term is attributed to the electrical power. By the mean of the steel binary Fe–C diagram and the deduced t-dependant temperature rise profile, an estimation of the A3 point spatial range date is given and compared to further results. The obtained temperature profile is yielded, taking into account main parameters variations, as a guide to non-destructive protocols and thermal characteristics investigation
