Paper Title:
The High Cycle Fatigue and Fracture Behavior of Friction Stir Welded Aluminum Alloy 2024
  Abstract

In this research paper, the cyclic stress amplitude controlled fatigue response and fracture behavior of an Al-Cu-Mg alloy (Aluminum Association designation 2024) is presented and discussed. The alloy was friction stir welded in the T8 temper to provide two plates one having high tensile ductility and denoted as Plate A and the other having low tensile ductility and denoted as Plate B. Test specimens of the alloy, prepared from the two plates, were cyclically deformed under stress amplitude control at two different load ratios with the primary objective of documenting the conjoint influence of magnitude of cyclic stress, load ratio and intrinsic microstructural effects on cyclic fatigue life and final fracture characteristics. The high cycle fatigue resistance of the alloy is described in terms of maximum stress, R-ratio, and microstructural influences on strength. The final fracture behavior of the friction stir welded alloy is discussed in light of the concurrent and mutually interactive influences of intrinsic microstructural effects, deformation characteristics of the alloy microstructure, magnitude of cyclic stress, and resultant fatigue life.
