Aluminium alloy AA5083 was friction stir processed to improve the intergranular corrosion (IGC) resistance. FSP trials were performed by varying the process parameters as per Taguchi's L18 orthogonal array. IGC resistance of the friction stir processed specimens were found by immersing them in concentrated nitric acid and measuring the mass loss per unit area. Results indicate that dispersion and partial dissolution of secondary phase increased IGC resistance of the friction stir processed specimens. A Sugeno fuzzy model was developed to study the effect of FSP process parameters on the IGC susceptibility of friction stir processed specimens. Tool Rotation Speed, Tool Traverse Speed and Shoulder Diameter have a significant effect on the IGC susceptibility of the friction stir processed specimens. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
