Texture and Microstructure Evolution in Friction Stir Welded Cu-Al Sheets Characterized by EBSD
Texture and microstructure of FSW joined Al and Cu sheets were investigated by means of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique. The analysis has revealed a strong texture evolution on both sides of the weld interface as well as a very complex microstructure. Grains were found to be fully recrystallized on both sides of the weld and with different average diameters at different specific zones of the weld.
