A methodology is presented for estimating average values for the temperature and the frictional traction over a tool-workpiece interface using measured values of force and torque applied to the tool. The approach was developed specifically for friction stir welding and friction stir processing applications, but is sufficiently general to be of use in a variety of other processes that involve sliding contact and heating at a tool-workpiece interface. The methodology works with a finite element… CONTINUE READING
