Effect of Process Parameters on Quality Characteristics of Al/Cu Dissimilar Friction Stir Welding Joint
Friction stir welding (FSW) is a useful technique to join dissimilar materials. The aim of present study is to find the effect of process parameters on the mechanical properties and metallurgical properties of joining of aluminium and copper dissimilar metals using FSW. The friction stir welding of aluminium and copper have been conducted by varying the tool traverse speed and the tool rotational speed. The result of tensile strength as an output parameter has been included in this study for the above input process parameters range.
