Abstract: High-strength Mg-Y-Zn alloy plate was obtained by friction stir processing (FSP) after casting. In this study, the effect of processing order on the strength of processed specimens was discussed. It was revealed that the microstructures and strength of doubly stirred zone depended on the direction of overlapping pass. In the area of the doubly stirred zone that was affected by the thermal history of Retreating-side, the hardness was 121Hv. It was twice as hard as Base Metal, and harder than the doubly stirred zone that was affected by thermal history of Advancing-side.

Abstract: Fatigue strength of Al5083-O FSW joints was evaluated in the relation of the FSW conditions. Static strength of the joints in a range of FSW conditions was the same as that of base metal. Because the fracture of the joints occurred at the base metal in the tensile tests. Therefore the joint efficiency in tensile strength of joints with the FSW condition of tool rotation: 800 rpmwelding speed: 100 mm/min (800-100), 800-200 and 500-100 are all hundred percent. However, the fatigue strength of those joints with fine static strength varied very much. The joint efficiency for fatigue strength varies from 75% for 500-100 to 31% for 800-200. Crack path in fatigue test was always initiated at the center of back surface of FSW weld zone, and propagated through stir zone. Crack growth rate measurement and fracture surface analysis resulted the difference of the joint efficiency has a connection with the incomplete welding at back surface of joints.

Abstract: Strength of Al5083-O FSW joints was evaluated, in relation to FSW conditions. Static strength of the joints was found to be enough because base metal fracture occurred in the tensile tests of joints for some FSW conditions. However, the fatigue strength of those joints with fine static strength varied significantly. For example, in tensile strength of joints with the FSW condition with tool rotation: 800 rpm- welding speed: 100 mm/min (800-100), 800 rpm-200 mm/min (800-200) and 500 rpm- 100 mm/min (500-100), each condition of FSW joint efficiency were all hundred percent. In contrast, joint efficiency for fatigue strength varied from 75% for 500-100 to 31% for 800-200. Crack path in fatigue test was always initiated at the center of back surface of FSW weld zone, and propagated through stir zone. The variance of fatigue strength is believed to be attributed to the stirred condition at back surface.

Abstract: Grain refinement of magnesium alloy by Friction Stir Processing (FSP) was investigated. It is assumed that dynamic recrystallization (DRX) is occurred by frictional heat and plastic flow during FSP. This process is the effective method of the grain refinement for light metals. In this study, FSP was conducted to cast Mg alloys for and the difference of the grain refinement by DRX in these alloys was examined. As a result, in comparison with commercial Mg-Al-Zn alloy and Mg-Y-Zn alloy have finer microstructure. The grain size of FSP-ed Mg-Y-Zn alloy was ~1.7 [/m], however, that of AZ31 alloy was 20~30 [/m].

Abstract: The influence of tool control in non-linear friction stir welding (FSW) on mechanical properties of joints was investigated. FSW is widely applied to linear joints. It is impossible for five axis FSW machines, however, to keep all the FSW parameters in optimum conditions at non-linear welding. Non-linear FSW joints should be made by compromise with the order of priority for FSW parameters. The tensile test results of butt joints with rectangular change in welding direction on plate plane (L-shaped butt joints) with various welding parameter change. It was found that turn to the retreating side is encouraged when welding direction change. And the method of zero inclination tool angle is effective at non-linear and plane welding.

Abstract: Microstructure and mechanical properties in friction stir processed (FSPed) Zr-based bulk metallic glass were investigated. The microstructure in the friction zone (FZ) exhibits an amorphous “band-like” structure with a small number of nanoscale crystalline particles. On the other hand, the microstructure in the FZ near the finish point of the process exhibits a large number of nanocrystalline particles in size of less than 20nm and amorphous phase. The difference of the microstructure in each FSP region is explained from the difference of the heat input by FSP. The hardness in each FSPed region shows higher value compared with that of other Zr-based balk metallic glasses with almost the same volume fraction of crystalline phase.
