Weldability Analysis of 316 Stainless Steel and AA1100 Alloy Hollow Tubes using Rotational Friction Welding Process
Abstract: The purpose of the current project work was to weld dissimilar metals of AA 1100 alloy and 316 stainless steel hollow tubes by rotational friction welding. The finite element analysis has been carried out to model the rotational friction welding. The process parameters have been optimized using Taguchi techniques. The optimal process parameters for AA1100 alloy and 316 stainless steel were found to be frictional pressure of 80 MPa, frictional time of 5 sec, rotational speed of 2000 rpm and forging pressure of 160 MPa.
