Mechanical Property of Friction Stir Welded Retardant Magnesium Alloy Joint
In order to obtain better understanding of the friction stir weldability of the magnesium alloy and provide some foundational information for improving mechanical properties of retardant magnesium alloy joints. A retardant magnesium alloy was weld using the method of friction stir welding. The influence of welding parameters on the strength of the joint was investigated. The maximum strength of 230 MPa was obtained from the joint welded at the tool rotational speed of 1000 r/min and welding speed of 750 mm/min.
