The main objective of the present work is to investigate the effect of the residual stresses originated by the friction stir welding (FSW) process in the compressive strength of aluminium alloy plates. The finite element method (FEM) is used to simulate the welding process and calculate the distribution of the residual stresses. The model is validated using a residual stress map obtained by means of the contour method from a friction stir welded AA2024-24 plate. The results from the welding simulation were then used to numerically assess the influence of the residual stresses on the collapse load of the plate.

Abstract

The main objective of the present work is to investigate the effect of the residual stresses originated by the friction stir welding (FSW) process in the compressive strength of aluminium alloy plates. The finite element method (FEM) is used to simulate the welding process and calculate the distribution of the residual stresses. The model is validated using a residual stress map obtained by means of the contour method from a friction stir welded AA2024-24 plate. The results from the welding simulation were then used to numerically assess the influence of the residual stresses on the collapse load of the plate.
