Abstract

The principal features of material flow during friction stir welding (FSW) were illustrated via textural measurements in magnesium alloys. The straining state in the stir zone was demonstrated to be close to the simple-shear deformation with the shear plane/direction aligned with the local surface of the welding tool. Due to the unique nature of FSW process as well as specific character of the welding tool geometry, texture distribution in the stir zone was shown to be inherently inhomogeneous. The impact of this effect on mechanical properties is briefly considered.
