As a solid state joining technique, FSW shows advantages in joining thin plates of hard-to-weld materials. FSW has been quickly applied for the joining of aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys, coppers, steels and even dissimilar metals. During friction stir welding, the tool pin inserts into the work piece and moves along the welding seam with a specified rotation speed. The material flow [Zhang and Zhang (2008)] can cause a severe interaction between the tool and the work piece… CONTINUE READING
