Abstract

The motivation of this work is the modeling of the hardening precipitate and hardness evolutions of fully hardened heat treatable aluminium alloys during friction stir welding (FSW) and/or heat treatment processes. The model used is based on the kinetics of dissolution of precipitates [...]

Abstract

Numerical models of heat transfer and fluid flow used in the simulation of the friction-stir welding (FSW) process have contributed to the understanding of the process. However, there are some input model parameters that cannot be easily determined from fundamental principles or the [...]
