Series: Woodhead Publishing Series in Welding and Other Joining Technologies

The Woodhead Publishing Series in Welding and Other Joining Technologies is a collection of professional reference books on recent advances in welding technology. The series provides comprehensive reviews on all the major technological developments in a broad range of welding techniques, procedures and joining technologies. The competitive advantage of the series is that it discusses the various problems that might be encountered, the advantages and disadvantages of the various processes and the importance of choosing the appropriate technology to fulfil a given requirement. Design recommendations and how they might be applied in good practice are also discussed as well as metallurgical phenomena, fatigue analysis, NDE and repair. The books in the series will be essential reading for metallurgists, practical welding engineers, materials scientists, welding inspectors, and all those involved in the study or practice of welding high-performance metals and other structural materials.

Published: 31st May 2014
Friction-stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining process primarily used on aluminum, and is also widely used for joining dissimilar metals such as aluminum, magnesium, copper and ferrous alloys. Recently, a friction-stir processing (FSP) technique based on FSW has been used for microstructural modifications, the homogenized and refined microstructure along with the reduced porosity resulting in improved mechanical properties. Advances in friction-stir welding and processing deals with the processes involved in different metals and polymers, including their microstructural and mechanical properties, wear and corrosion behavior, heat flow, and simulation. The book is structured into ten chapters, covering applications of the technology; tool and welding design; material and heat flow; microstructural evolution; mechanical properties; corrosion behavior and wear properties. Later chapters cover mechanical alloying and FSP as a welding and casting repair technique; optimization and simulation of artificial neural networks; and FSW and FSP of polymers.
