Title

Fatigue Properties of Friction Stir Welds in Al 5083 Alloy

Abstract

The alloy 5083 was welded by friction stir welding and inert-gas metal-arc welding (MIG-pulse). The fatigue life of friction stir welds is 9-12 times longer than that of MIG-pulse welds under R = 0.1 and the fatigue characteristic values of each welds have been increased from 39.8 MPa for MIG to 67.3 MPa for FSW.
