Simulation of a Friction Stir Welding Process using FE technique
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: Report TVSM
In this paper a three dimensional FE model of the friction stir welding (FSW) is presented and the FSW process is simulated. The model has been implemented in FE code Abaqus with user subroutines DLOAD, DFLUX and UMASFL. The material data used to describe the welded panels is from an aluminium alloy called AL-2024-T3 and the material is assumed to be isotropic with temperature dependent yield stress and elastic modulus. A nonlinear-coupled thermo-mechanical analysis was performed in order to study the temperature and stress distribution.
