Comparison of Friction Stir and Tungsten Inert Gas Weldments of AA6061-T6
In this research, 6061-T6 aluminum alloys were welded using friction stir welding and tungsten inert as techniques in order to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties. FSW of aluminium alloys has showed better mechanical properties compared to the conventional welding, tungsten inert gas (TIG). FSW weldment did not show any pores at the nugget zone compared to fusion zone in TIG weldment which produced a lot of pores.
