Failure of FSSW on Mild Steel Plates Using En19 Taper Thread Tool

FSSW is used a lot of vicinity which are from marine to aerospace industry. FSSW is effected with tool rotational speed, tool transverse speed, dwell time and tool plunge depth. One of them is weight. With the reference to the research work In this paper two flat plates of similar metals of MS of 1.2 mm thickness & 30.25mm specimen width are subjected to a solid state welding at 900rpm using the EN19 taper thread tool. The tensile-shear test results showed that the FSSW specimens are better than the specimens welded by the conventional FSSW process at 900-1300 tool rotational speeds with using taper thread tool pin profiles. By doing tensile test following ASTM B 557:2006 procedure the ultimate shear load obtained from the conventional friction stir spot welds is 1.960KN.
