Friction Stir Processing of Aluminum Alloys: A Literature Survey

Authors(2) :-Uday Sen, Kulbhushan Sharma

Many aluminum alloys with specific properties, like high strength, suffers from certain limitations in terms of cost and time of production, apart from the reduction in ductility. High strength accompanied by high ductility is possible with materials having fine and homogenous grain structures. Hence there arises a necessity to develop a processing technique that would produce a material with small grain size that satisfies the requirements of strength and ductility, friction stir processing is such a new promising technique, but still in research phase.
