Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is a solid state welding process in which the heat for welding is produced by the relative motion between the tool and the two interfaces being joined. This method relies on the direct conversion of mechanical energy into thermal energy to form the weld without the application of heat energy from any other source. The rotational speed of the tool, the axial pressure of the tool and the welding time are the principle variables that are controlled in order to provide the necessary combination of heat and pressure to form the weld. In this project, FEA analysis is performed for friction stir welding of dissimilar metals. The welds are produced by varying the process parameters; the rotational speed and welding speed mm/min. Structural and thermal analysis are done. A parametric model with the weld plates and round cutting tool is done in Pro/Engineer.
