Abstract: Friction Stir welding (FSW) is used as an alternative technique from recent years for joining metals. A solid-state process consisting non-consumable tool becomes more attractive and feasible method for applications in the industries. In this research study, change in Mechanical properties of friction stir welded aluminum alloy of 6000 series is observed concerning the change in their input parameters i.e. tool RPM, feed rate and tool tip cross section (conical, square, triangular). Analysis done from these investigations will be presented and described.
