ItemConcept of Determining the Friction Stir Welding Mode(Національний гірничий університет, Дніпро, 2018) Vakulenko, Ihor O.; Plitchenko, Serhii; Murashova, Nataliia H.; Bohomaz, Volodymyr M.ENG: Purpose. To determine the optimal mode of friction stir welding of aluminum alloy. Methodology. 2.5 mm thick plates made of aluminum alloy AMg5 with chemical content of alloying elements within grade composition were used as a material for the research. Friction stir welding was carried out using specially designed equipment with a preselected form and dimensions of working tool. At different ratios of the working tool rotation frequency the forces of pressing and speed of its movement along the connecting edges determined the metal heating degree and the quality of welded joint formation. Temperature of the connecting edges heating was determined by thermocouples immersed in metal at different distances from the welded joint. Rotational speed of the working tool was from 800 to 1600 min-1 with the effort of pressing to the plate surface from 580 to 1370 N and the speed of movement along the joint of 50 mm/min. Findings. On the basis of different ratios of the working tool rotation speed and pressing to the connecting edges, there were determined conditions for achieving the effect of constant softening during friction stir welding. In order to achieve a high level of welding joint quality during friction stir welding it is necessary to carry out the process at high revolutions of the working tool and low levels of pressing to the connecting edges. Originality. At the constant speed of the working tool rotation proportional increase in alloy temperature from increasing the level of its pressing to the connecting edges is disturbed by achievement of conditions of the dynamic softening processes development. Practical value. The concept of choosing the technological parameters of welding process is determined, when it is preferred to increase in speed of the working tool rotation when the level of its pressing to the connecting edges decreases.
