Formability of Friction Stir Welded and Arc Welded 5083 Aluminum Alloy Sheets
The formability in friction stir and arc welded 5083 Al alloys was investigated. The elongation in friction stir welded material under uniaxial tensile test increased with the decrease in friction heat flow during friction stir welding (FSW) and the value of dome height under biaxial bulge test increased with friction heat flow. The ductility improved according to changes in FSW condition and FS-welded alloy sheet exhibited excellent formability.
