Title: The development of process technology for the friction stir welding of thick section aluminium alloys
Author: Zettler, Rudolf
Issue Date: 2006
School/Discipline: School of Mechanical Engineering
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how the interaction of the welding tool, particularly tool pin form in conjunction with rotational speed, applied force and processing temperature can account for joint formation during FSW (friction stir welding).
