Abstract: Friction stir welding (FSW) of AA 5052 H32 to AA 6061 T6 blanks was obtained for each thicknesses of 1 mm and 1.5 mm. Successful welds were obtained at constant tool spindle speed of 1500 rpm and two tool traverse speeds of 63 mm/min and 98 mm/min. For both thicknesses, weld produced at 63 mm/min speed gives more ductility than the weld produced at 98 mm/min. Elongation prior failure of 1.5 mm thick tailor welded blank (TWB) was found to be 47% more than that of 1 mm thickness weld. Microhardness measurement o…
