An investigation of the impact of axial force on friction stir-welded AA5086/AA6063 on microstructure and mechanical properties but joints 2020-28-0396

Friction stir welding (FSW) is a process through which frictional heating and plastic deformation normally joined the work pieces at temperatures under the melting temperature of the materials to be united. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of axial force during welding on the mechanical properties of dissimilar aluminum alloys (AA5086 and AA6063 aluminum alloy) formed by friction stir welding process. Friction stir welding was performed using three different axial forces (Viz 5kN, 6kN and 7kN) on the dissimilar aluminum alloys and the impact of these on the mechanical performance of samples were investigated in contexts of tensile , bending and hardness testing. In addition microstructural behavior of welded samples also analyzed. The mechanical characteristics of the joints were strongly influenced by the axial force applied during the welding process, based on experimental results.
