Abstract

Friction Stir Processing (FSP) was employed to study its effect on the microstructure and texture of AA 5052 alloy. The material was characterized using Orientation Imaging Microscopy (OIM) and X-ray texture. A correlation was made between the processing parameters (rotation and translation speeds), microstructure and the microtexture developed in the material. The processing resulted in significant grain refinement, when compared to the starting material. Although the rotation and translation speeds played roles on the development of the microstructure, the rotation speed had a greater impact. Reduction in the rotation speed resulted in further refinement of the grain size. A detailed characterization of the samples produced by FSP has been carried out, and the mechanism for recrystallization is discussed in this paper.
