Abstract

Currently friction stir welding tools are designed by trial and error. Here we propose and test a criterion for the design of a tool shoulder diameter based on the principle of maximum utilization of supplied torque for traction. The optimum tool shoulder diameter computed from this principle using a numerical heat transfer and material flow model resulted in best weld metal strength in independent tests and peak temperatures that are well within the commonly encountered range.
