Effect of Friction Stir Welding Process Parameters on Temperature Profile and Tensile Strength of Dissimilar Aluminum Alloys
The aim of this research is to study the effect of Friction Stir Welding (FSW) process parameters such as tool rotational speed and welding speed on temperature distribution and tensile strength of dissimilar AA5083-O and AA6063-T6 joint welded by FSW. Peak temperature at retreating side was observed lower as compared to advancing side for each experiment. Peak temperature decreases with decreasing the tool rotational speed but vice versa with welding speed. ANOVA indicated that the temperature profile was strongly dependent on the tool rotation speed than the welding speed and it also showed that welding speed is the main process parameter that has highest effect on tensile strength of welded joint.
