Paper Title:
Mechanical Behaviour of FSW Aluminium Tailored Blanks
  Abstract

The mechanical behaviour of homogeneous and inhomogeneous FSW aluminium tailored blanks is analysed in this paper. The heterogeneity in mechanical properties across the different weld zones is discussed based on hardness testing results. Tensile and formability test results are also shown and the mechanical behaviour of the welds is discussed in relation to the base materials. Despite the hardness tests have indicated very small differences in hardness, between the welds and the base materials, and the tensile test results also showed similarities in mechanical behaviour, the formability tests revealed additional difficulties in forming the welded sheets.
