    Ductile damage development in a Friction Stir Welded aluminum joint subjected to tension is analyzed numerically by finite element analysis, based on a total Lagrangian formulation. For the friction stir welding process, it has experimentally been shown that some process parameters affect the variation of mechanical properties transverse to the weldline. Main focus here and in [1] is on the effect of changes in the yield stress profile transverse to the weldline, on ductile damage development
