Finite Element Analysis of Friction Welding Process for 2024Al Alloy and AISI 1021 Steel
Abstract: The purpose of this work was to weld dissimilar metals of 2024Al and AISI 1021 steel by continuous drive friction welding. The finite element analysis has been carried out to model the continuous drive friction welding. The process parameters have been optimized using Taguchi techniques. The optimal process parameters for 2024Al and AISI 1021 steel are found to be frictional pressure of 35 MPa, frictional time of 3 sec, rotational speed of 1500 rpm and forging pressure of 37.5 MPa.
