A computational fluid dynamics(CFD) based numerical model is developed to predict the temperature distribution during Friction Stir Welding(FSW) of dissimilar aluminum alloys. The effect of tool rotation speed and axial pressure on heat transfer during FSW has been studied. Numerical results indicate that the maximum temperature in FSW process can be increased with the increase of the axial pressure and tool rotation speed. The influence region of the tool shoulder in the direction of thickness can be increased with the increase in the axial pressure on the shoulder. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland
