INFLUENCE OF PARAMETERS IN FRICTION STIR WELDING (FSW) PROCESS: A REVIEW
Conference: Creative Trends in Engineering and Technology
In this paper an attempt has been made to envelop the parameters of FSW in framework of input-output\nmodel, governed by the general peculiarities of solid state joining process. Reported work on FSW has been reviewed in\na manner that how the independent process parameters like tool rotation rate, tool traverse speed, tool geometry, tool tilt\nangle, plunge depth, axial force for plunging etc. may be made to address the process requirements in most favourable\nway. The focus of the work is to look for the critical parameters and analyze them so that one can get optimum match\nbetween the expectations regarding the soundness of joint made and actual behaviour of joint in real working\nenvironment. The aim of this work is to make an attempt to draw some general inferences about input parameters to the\nFSW process and their effects with respect to joint characteristics in general.
