Analysis and Correlation of Output Parameters against Input Parameters for Friction Stir Welding of Three Dissimilar Aluminum Alloy
Friction Stir Welding, abbreviated FSW is an innovative joining process. The FSW is a solid-state welding process with a lot of advantages comparing to the traditional arc welding, such as the following: it uses a non-consumable tool, it results of good mechanical properties, it can use dissimilar materials and it have a low environmental impact. First of all, the FSW process was developed to join similar aluminum plates, and now, the technology was developed and the FSW process is used to weld large types of materials, similar or dissimilar. In this paper it is presented an experimental study and the results of it, which includes the welding of three dissimilar aluminum alloy, with different chemical and mechanical properties. This three materials are: AA2024, AA6061 and AA7075. The welding joints and the welding process were analyzed considering: process temperature, micro-hardness, macrostructure and microstructure.
