Abstract

The microstructure of friction stir processed AA5052 sheets is investigated using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Orientation Imaging Microscopy. The correlation between the generated forces during processing and the microstructure is evaluated. Observations indicate that the finest microstructure are achieved when the plunging forces are at minimum.
