Contributions to the Development of Friction Stir Welding Process
The Friction Stir Welding (FSW) method entails joining materials in their solid state at low temperature. These materials are amalgamated preferably at a temperature below the melting point to allow different types of metals with varying properties to merge (Adamowski and Szkodo). This method mostly depends on the FSW tool that makes it a successful story. The device used in FSW process comprises of a rotating circular shoulder and a threaded cylindrical pin that produces heat on the workpiece by frictional force. This pin plays a vital role by moving the softened alloy around the workpiece to form the joint (Cojocaru, Verbitchir and Ciuca). This process deters the undesirable intermetallic phase formation that is prevalent during the normal fusion welding process. In scientific and technological fields of research, joining processes of advanced material is quite low especially in transportation and aeronautic sectors.
Moreover, in material fabrication industries, material joining process is crucial and innovative processes would be of great significance to the emergence and development of various technologies (Cojocaru, Botila and Ciuca). Development and technological dynamics in these fields create a high demand for the joining processes from economic, environmental, and technical perspective
