Microstructure Analysis on Friction Stir Welding of Magnesium Alloys
1J. Manikandan and D. Surya Ramanjaneyulu
Friction stir welding is an eco-friendly solid state welding technique employed particularly for joining the magnesium alloys since is a light weight metal which is difficult to join by conventional process. During the friction stir welding process the influence of tool rotational speed on the magnesium alloy are carried out at different speeds. Further microstructure analysis is performed on the welded joint, from this we find microstructure evolution, weld defects and properties of weld tool.
