Friction stir welding is a technique useful for joining aluminum alloys that are difficult to weld. In recent years, however the focuses has been on welding dissimilar aluminum alloys, and analyze their mechanical properties and micro-structural characteristics. In the present study, the less investigated welding of cast aluminum alloys is considered. Cast aluminum alloys, A356 and A413, commonly used in automotive and aerospace industries, were friction-stir welded and their mechanical… CONTINUE READING
