Authors(5) :-Patel Pratikkumar R, Suthar Ghanshyam B, Ray Urvesh J, Shukla Jyotish, Mr. Barot Jaydeep

Friction stir welding is the solid state joining process which can produce high quality welds with either similar or dissimilar materials and has been attracting increasing attention. It is used to join the high strength alloys which are difficult or uneconomical to weld by conventional fusion welding techniques. Friction stir welding was invented and established by The Welding Institute (TWI) in 1991.The aim of this paper is to reviews the work done in the area of joining aluminium alloy and stainless steel, analysis of mechanical properties of weld and concludes by suggesting further scope for research in Friction stir welding and optimum process parameters.
