    • An Evaluation of Constitutive Laws and their Ability to Predict Flow Stress over Large Variations in Temperature, Strain, and Strain Rate Characteristic of Friction Stir Welding
    • Kuykendall, Katherine Lynn
    • Constitutive laws commonly used to model friction stir welding have been evaluated, both qualitatively and quantitatively, and a new application of a constitutive law which can be extended to materials commonly used in FSW is presented. Existing...


    • An Investigation into the Mechanisms of Formation of the Hard Zone in FSW X65
    • Allred, Jacob D.
    • Friction stir welding (FSW) of HSLA steel commonly produces a hard zone (HZ) on the advancing side (AS) of the weld. Despite its detrimental effects on weld toughness, the mechanisms of its formation have not been thoroughly investigated and are...


    • Analytical Thermal Model of Friction Stir Welding with Spatially Distributed Heat Source
    • Reese, Gordon Scott
    • Friction stir welding (FSW) has been studied extensively for the past two decades. Thermal modeling has been of particular interest, as the quality of the weld is dependent upon the temperature history of the work piece during the process. Since...


    • Characterizing the Frictional Interface in Friction Stir Welding
    • Stratton, Daryl A 1979-
    • Quantitative understanding of frictional phenomena between the tool and the workpiece is essential for accurate modeling of the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) process. Two methods of measuring the tool-workpiece interface are proposed that allow...


    • Development and Characterization of Friction Bit Joining: A New Solid State Spot Joining Technology Applied to Dissimilar Al/Steel Joints
    • Siemssen, Brandon Raymond 1984-
    • Friction bit joining (FBJ) is a new solid-state spot joining technology developed in cooperation between Brigham Young University of Provo Utah, and MegaStir Technologies of West Bountiful Utah. Although capable of joining several different...


    • Effects of Friction Stir Welding on Polymer Microstructure
    • Strand, Seth R 1974-
    • This work establishes the relationships between several key Friction Stir Welding process parameters and the resulting microstructural and flexural properties of the welded joint. A series of four single parameter experiments were run. The...



    • Experimental and Numerical Investigation of Tool Heating During Friction Stir Welding
    • Covington, Joshua L 1976-
    • The heat input to the tool has been investigated for friction stir welding (FSW) of aluminum alloy AL 7075-T7351 over a wide range of process operating parameters using a combined experimental/numerical approach. In a statistical Design of...


    • Friction Stir Welding of High-Strength Automotive Steel
    • Olsen, Eric Michael 1979-
    • The following thesis is a study on the ability to create acceptable welds in thin-plate, ultra-high-strength steels (UHSS) by way of friction stir welding (FSW). Steels are welded together to create tailor-welded blanks (TWB) for use in the...


    • Investigate Correlations of Microstructures, Mechanical Properties and FSW Process Variables in Friction Stir Welded High Strength Low Alloy 65 Steel
    • Wei, Lingyun 1972-
    • The present study focuses on developing a relationship between process variables, mechanical properties and post weld microstructure in Friction Stir Welded HSLA 65 steel. Fully consolidated welds can be produced in HSLA 65 steel by PCBN...


    • Investigation and Implementation of a Robust Temperature Control Algorithm for Friction Stir Welding
    • Ross, Kenneth A
    • In friction stir welding, the temperature of the process zone affects the properties of the resulting weld and has a dramatic effect on tool life in PCBN (polycrystalline cubic boron nitride) tools. Therefore an active control system that changes...


    • Investigation of Heterogeneity of FSW Inconel 718 Coupled with Welding Thermal Cycle
    • Huang,Dong Fang 1969-
    • In order to develop a better understanding of the property, microstructure evolution and thermal history of FSW Inconel 718’s, the strain, strain rate and thermal cycles need to be determined. In order to estimate the strain field of a deformed...


    • Joining Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride and Tungsten Carbide by Partial Transient Liquid Phase Bonding
    • Cook, Grant O III 1981-
    • Friction stir welding (FSW) of steel is often performed with an insert made of polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN). Specifically, MS80 is a grade of PCBN made by Smith MegaDiamond that has been optimized for the FSW process. The PCBN insert...


    • Material Flow Behavior in Friction Stir Welding
    • Liechty, Brian C 1976-
    • Material flow in friction stir welding is largely uncharacterized due to the difficulty in material flow measurement and visualization in metals. This study investigates plasticine for use as an analog for modeling material flow in friction stir...


    • Microstructural Evaluation in Friction Stir Welded High Strength Low Alloy Steels
    • Abbasi Gharacheh, Majid
    • Understanding microstructural evolution in Friction Stir Welding (FSW) of steels is essential in order to understand and optimize the process. Ferritic steels undergo an allotropic phase transformation. This makes microstructural evolution study...
