Paper Title:
Joining Metals by Combining Mechanical Stirring and Thermomechanical Treatment to Form a Globular Weld Structure
  Abstract

A method for joining metals in the semisolid state is presented. A model alloy Sn-15%Pb was used to demonstrate the concept. By presented process, dendritic microstructure of the weld zone can be avoided. Moreover, near-weld zone of the cold worked substrates which is affected by heat would have a globular structure due to a thermomechanical treatment. The two substrates were heated up locally in the joint line to the semisolid temperature range. At this point a stirrer was introduced into the weld seam in order to mix the two sides into a single uniform joint. Localized mechanical properties of different zones were examined using Shear Punch Test (SPT), showing a good strength in the weld zone and thermomechanically affected zone.
