Friction Stir welding (FSW), Aluminum alloy 2024, Tensile Strength, Charpy test.


In this research, frictions stir welding of aluminum alloy AA2024 and welding with its similar plate having a cross section of 100 x 50 x 5 mm. The work piece is heating with variation of temperature with its variation of holding time and cooled it in water. Heat treated work-piece is welded by friction stir welding process with variation of tool rotation speed and other parameters are constant for all experiment. For experiment design using the selected control parameters are Temperature, holding time and tool rotation speed and the three control parameters each are three levels has been designing the experiment based on L9 Orthogonal Array (OA). After welding, specimen is tested for mechanical properties such as tensile strength and Charpy Test respectively. The results show that Charpy impact test and tensile stress increased with increase the parameter level. The optimum process parameters for the maximum tensile strength and Charpy impact joints are optimized.
