Effect of Process Parameters on Mechanical Properties of Friction Stir Lap Welds of AA6082

Author : P. Hema 1 G Raghuvadhan Reddy 2 M. Reddeiah 3

Date of Publication :15th March 2017

Abstract: In this study experiments were performed to investigate the effects of FSLW process parameters including Tool Rotational Speed, Welding Speed and Tool Tilt Angle on Mechanical properties of Aluminum 6082 alloy in lap joint welding. Using ANOVA, significance and influence of FSLW process parameters were predicted, and Harmony Search Algorithm (HSA) is developed for optimum welding conditions for measuring mechanical properties of the joint.
