HEAT INPUT EFFECT OF FRICTION STIR WELDING ON ALUMINIUM ALLOY AA 6061-T6 WELDED JOINT

ABSTRACT
This paper deals with the heat input and maximum temperature developed during friction stir welding with different parameters. Aluminium alloy (AA 6061-T6) has been used for experimental and numerical analysis. Experimental analysis is based on temperature measurements by using infrared camera, whereas numerical analysis was based on empirical expressions and finite element method. Different types of defects have been observed in respect to different levels of heat input.
