Wiping Metal Transfer in Friction Stir Welding
Author and Affiliation:
Nunes, Arthur C., Jr.(TMS, United States)
Whitaker, Ann F. [Technical Monitor]
Abstract: Much evidence suggests that as the friction stir pin-tool moves along a weld seam the displacement of metal takes place by a wiping action at the surface of a plug of metal that rotates with the tool. The wiping model is explained and some consequences for the friction stir welding process are drawn.
