Friction Stir Welding, Aluminium Alloy, Process Parameters, Tensile strength.


Friction stir welding (FSW) is an innovative solid state joining process. This paper discuss about the friction stir welding of joining heat treated aluminum alloys for Aerospace and Automobile industries. These welded joints have higher tensile strength to weight ratio and finer micro structure. FSW of aluminum alloys have the potential to hold good mechanical and metallurgical properties. An attempt is made to determine and evaluate the influence of the process parameters of FSW on the weldments. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of process parameters on the tensile strength of the welded joints.
