The effect of process parameters on the mechanical properties, microstructure, and fatigue behavior during the FSSW
of divergent series of aluminum alloys, copper alloys, magnesium alloys, steels, and dissimilar metals were investigated by many researchers [8-13].
Among the aforementioned processes, the FSSW
process developed by Mazda Motor Corporation and Kawasaki Heavy Industry was originally used for joining similar and dissimilar aluminum sheets [14,15].
Larvae from each tank were collected from the drain-down sieves, rinsed with FSSW
, and 10 ml of larvae from each tank were placed into a sterile tube.
Thermo-mechanical modeling of friction stir spot welding (FSSW
) process: use of an explicit adaptive meshing scheme.
When Fd > 1.0, the FSSW
becomes dominant, with the presence of a strongly interacting breaking wave.
Due to FSSW
's technical advantages, including its ability to join dissimilar alloys easily, interest has increased in FSSW
as a substitute for RSW in joining similar or dissimilar ferrous alloys in automotive applications.
The cultures were centrifuged at 2,300 X g for 10 min and washed twice with FSSW
to harvest the cells.
A friction stir spot welding (FSSW
) process is therefore developed for joining aluminum sheets [1,2].
The papers [3, 4] present experimental investigations on the influence of the tool geometry on stir spot weld hook formation and static strength of FSSW
joints, still, there are not a lot of studies dealing with the influence of the tool rotation speed, tool plunge rate and dwell time on the FSSW
was invented by Mazda Motor Corporation in 1993 , which is similar in concept and appearance to its predecessor FSW.
The Rangers current deal with FSSW
was concluded in 2000.
Oysters (25-30 larvae) were placed in each well of a 6-well plate containing 5 mL FSSW
at 28 psu.
