Understanding Friction Stir Welding process
  • Introduction to Friction Stir Welding process  

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is a relatively new joining process that has been used for high production since 1996. Because melting does not occur and joining takes place below the melting temperature of the material, a high-quality weld is created. This characteristic greatly reduces the ill effects of high heat input, including distortion, and eliminates solidification defects. Friction stir welding also is highly efficient, produces no fumes, and uses no filler material which makes this process environmentally friendly.


  • Working principle of Friction Stir Welding process  

    Friction Stir Welding process is a thermo mechanical process. This lecture will give you an overview of the working principle of Friction Stir Welding process.

  • Advantage of Friction Stir Welding  

    In this lecture learn how Friction Stir Welding process has an advantage over another conventional welding process.

  • Parameters in Friction Stir Welding process  

    In this lecture learn how different parameters like tool tilt, plunge depth, tool design and tool speed play an important role in Friction Stir Welding process.

  • Session 1 Quiz  

    Before attempting this quiz, learners are requested to go through session 1 lectures well.

Mechanism involved in Friction Stir Welding process
  • Various phases in Friction Stir Welding process  

    In this lecture you will learn about various phases which divide the Friction Stir Welding process.

  • Material flow in Friction Stir Welding process  

    In this lecture learn about the factors on which material flow depends and reasons why material flow occurs.

  • Onion rings formation  

    The effect of onion ring on properties is a topic of research for many years and not yet clearly understood. However, it is believed that these rings can have indirect effect on the properties. Under uni-axial stress field, the uniformity of the ring patterns may have no/less effect on the stress distribution across the weld joint. But, any irregularities in the pattern can create substantial changes in stress flow and increases the probability of stress concentration. Stress concentrated regions are subjected to premature failure under stress field.
