The aim is to analyze a junction produced by a Friction Stir Welding (FSW) joining process under multiaxial loading, employing a modified Arcan test that allows an angle variation of the loading in order to evaluate the failure of the FSW weldment as compared to the base material. A short review of the earlier studies and relevant theories about the FSW processes and fracture modes I and II under multiaxial loading are presented and were experimentally evaluated for an AA2024-T3 aluminum alloy sheets (t = 1.6 mm) processed by FSW. The results obtained can serve as a basis to compare the junctions made using FSW and conventional joint methods such as rivets (very common practice in the aeronautical industry).
