Abstract

In the paper the results of a wide range of experiments on friction stir welding (FSW) of aluminium alloys are reported. In particular, the AA6082-T6 butt joints fatigue resistance was investigated by varying the most relevant process parameters. In addition, a revolutionary pitch was utilized in order to investigate the effects of the tool rotating speed and the tool feed rate. Observations of the fracture insurgence were developed for different levels of applied load.
