  • Abstract

Friction Stir Welding process is a novel green solid state joining process for soft materials such as aluminium alloys. The weld quality is governed by the proper selection of parameters such as forge force rotational speed of the tool, welding speed, backing plate material etc. Thermal boundary condition at the bottom of the work piece plays an important role for obtaining the sound joint. The backing plate material governs these thermal conditions. In this case study, high thermal diffusivity backing plate material which consisted of AA2099 was used for joining of the plates of Structural Aluminium alloy. It was observed that the tensile strength was improved.
