Abstract:Friction Stir Welding (FSW) has been arousing a continuously increasing interest among joining processes since its invention in 1991. Although mainly used for aluminum alloys, it can also be applied to other light alloys. In the present work, experimental and numerical campaigns have been performed with the aim to study the effect of the tool geometry on the mechanical properties of FSW-ed AZ31 magnesium alloy sheets. The results, presented in terms of tensile strength, ductility, micro-hardness values and num…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
