Abstract

The objective of the present work is to present the basic elements of the thermal modelling of friction stir welding as well as to clarify some of the uncertainties in the literature regarding the different contributions to the heat generation. Some results from a new thermal pseudomechanical model in which the temperature-dependent yield stress of the weld material controls the heat generation are also presented.
