The mechanical behaviour of welded structures can be significantly affected by the effects of the employed joining process. The main goal of this work is to assess the influence of the longitudinal residual stresses on the overall compressive performance of aluminium friction stir welded plates. Longitudinal residual stress distribution was measured by means of the contour method and introduced as initial condition into a finite element model of the compressed assembly.

Abstract

The mechanical behaviour of welded structures can be significantly affected by the effects of the employed joining process. The main goal of this work is to assess the influence of the longitudinal residual stresses on the overall compressive performance of aluminium friction stir welded plates. Longitudinal residual stress distribution was measured by means of the contour method and introduced as initial condition into a finite element model of the compressed assembly. Also, the sensitivity of the plates to the magnitude of the initial geometrical imperfections was analysed. It can be inferred that both factors influence the plate's mechanical behaviour.
