In recent years friction stir welding process has received a great deal of attention from the transport industry. During the process, heat generation and material stirring induce significant microstructural alteration in the base material, affecting the properties of the welded assembly. In this paper the influence of process parameters, namely rotating speed and welding speed, on mechanical properties of AA2024-T3 friction stir butt welds is experimentally investigated. An increase of the yield stress has been found decreasing the heat input, while an opposite variation was measured for the elongation.
