Abstract


This undergraduate research study is a part of an ongoing project aiming to increase the fracture toughness and crack growth resistance of fusion welded 5083 grade aluminum plates, by use of Friction Stir Processing (FSP). This paper presents the details of base metal characterization.

Microstructure of the base metal (RD: Rolling Direction, TD: Transverse Direction).

Keywords
