A Conceptual Model for the Process Variables Related to Heat Generation in Friction Stir Welding of Aluminum
This paper seeks to describe relationships between the independent process variables and the dependent process outcomes related to heat generation and dissipation in friction stir welding. A conceptual model, proposed earlier, has been modified to specifically distinguish between plastic work and friction in the generation of heat. A case study is used to confirm and explore the relationships expressed in the conceptual model. Further, a method for expressing friction coefficient variation with respect to the key process variables is introduced.
