EBSD Technique Visualization of Material Flow in Aluminum to Steel Friction-stir Dissimilar Welding


Based on extreme plastic deformation in the solid state, friction stir welding (FSW) has rapidly become an important process for joining dissimilar alloys. However, understanding of the mechanisms of microstructure formation and material flow of dissimilar joints are very complex and still remain limited or unclear. Here we present the application of EBSD-based orientation SEM microscopy as a powerful tool for material flow investigation providing both qualitative and quantitative information.
