The present study is on the development of friction stir welding (FSW) of commercial grade Al-alloy to study the mechanical and microstructural properties. The proposed research will include experiments related to the effect of FSW optimum process parameter on weldability of Al alloy. The present paper has been subdivided in to two different sections: 1. Study of Mechanical properties and 2. Study of micro-structural properties. Section1 describes the tensile strength of welded sample and distribution of microhardness in different zones of FSW weld specimen and section2 contains the microstructure characterization of different zones of friction stir welds.
