Abstract

Friction stir welding (FSW) is a new solid-state joining process. This technique is energy efficient, environment agreeable and versatile. The principal advantages are low distortion, absence of melt related defects and high strength of joint. In FSW parameters play an important role like tool design and material, welded plate thickness, tool tilt angle, tool rotational speed, travel speed and axial force. Our goal is to optimize the welding parameters to achieve maximum tensile strength of aluminum alloys under FSW.
