Friction stir spot welding
of pure aluminum sheet in view of high temperature deformation, Transactions of JWRI 40(2): 1-5.
 reported that plunge depth increased with the increase of dwell time and plunge rate on the pinless friction stir spot welding
The friction stir spot welding
experiments were carried out welding two identical plates of the same material (aluminium alloy 5754 was used for the experiments).
As a variant of the conventional friction stir welding (FSW), a new solid state joining technology called friction stir spot welding
(FSSW) was developed in 1993 [1, 2].
