Analysis of Wear Behaviourof the Friction Stir Welded Jointswith Varying Track Diametersfor Non-Welded and Welded Samples


Objectives: To analyze the wear behaviour of friction stir welding on similarAA6061-AA6061, AA6082-6082 and dissimilar Alloys AA6061-6082 with T6 condition and varying track diameters. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Ultrasonic test and penetratetest are some of the Non Destructive Test methods are used to check the weld defects. Pin on disc method is used to study the wear behavior. Metallurgical microscope is used for Micro structure analysis. Analysis of sliding distance Vs. weight loss was performed for samples of welded and non welded zones of similar Alloys AA6061-AA6061, AA6082-6082 and dissimilar Alloys AA6061-6082. Findings: NDT tests have shown no deflects inwelded zone,less amount of weight loss and similar material AA6061-6061 welded joints, has better outcome in welded zone. Applications: Further corrosion test and XRD analysis can be performed as Aluminum alloys has application in marine and modern transportation.
