As the concept of Friction stir welding is relatively new, there are many areas, which need thorough investigation to optimize and make it commercially viable. In order to obtain the desired mechanical properties, certain process parameters, like rotational and translation speeds, tool tilt angle, tool geometry etc. are to be controlled. Aluminum alloys of 5xxx series and their welded joints show good resistance to corrosion in sea water. Here, a literature survey has been carried out for the friction stir welding of 5xxx series aluminum alloys.
