Abstract

The present study investigates the mechanical and metallurgical properties of friction-welded steel-aluminium and aluminium-copper bars, a friction welder having been designed and built for this purpose. The effects of the three main parameters: speed of rotation; friction load; and duration of welding; on the metallurgical and mechanical properties of the weld such as the yield, tensile and breaking strengths, are studied experimentally and statistically. The metallurgical properties of the weld are examined using electron and optical microscopy.
