Investigate the Properties of FSW Aluminum Alloy by Varying the Tool Geometry: A Literature Review

Authors(5) :-Abhishek R. Solanki , Brijesh A. Gandhi , Amol A. Patil , Keyur J. Patel , Mr. Saumil Joshi

FSW (Friction stir welding) is a newest green welding process. Itís a solid-state joining process that uses a non-consumable rotating tool to join the two same or different metal. During the process, heat is generated by friction between the rotating tool and the work piece material, which leads joining two facing of work pieces before the melting point of the metal reached. Quality of the weld zone depends on tool geometry and welding parameters. This review presents the effect of different pin and shoulder geometry on aluminum alloy.
