Abstract

The present study is focused on the application of the friction stir welding process (FSW) to weld aluminium matrix composites (AMCs). Joints are formed by varying FSW process variables such as tool revolving speed (TRS), tool traverse speed (TTS) and the tool pin geometry (TPG). Influence of these parameters on the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) of the joints is investigated. Process variable optimization is done using Taguchi L18 orthogonal array design. Optimum process variables are determined and confirmed by confirmation tests based on the analysis of variance.
