The results of experimental activity on friction stir welding (FSW) of aluminum alloys are reported. Butt joints of two different materials, namely AA2024-T4 and AA7075-T6, were investigated from a metallurgical point of view. Grain dimensions and insoluble particle densities were investigated both in the parent materials and in the joints. Furthermore, the effect of post-welding heat treatments on the joint strength was studied.
