The Frictions Stir Welding Tools with Different Composite Materials Using With CREO and ANSYS



The Friction-stir welding (FSW) is a solid-state joining process (the metal is not melted) that uses a third body tool to join two facing surfaces. Heat is generated between the tool and material which leads to a very soft region near the FSW tool. It then mechanically intermixes the two pieces of metal at the place of the joint, then the softened metal (due to the elevated temperature) can be joined using mechanical pressure (which is applied by the tool), much like joining clay, or dough. In this project we have designed circular tool by using creo-2 and then applied static (tool rotational velocity 1000 rpm) and thermal (temperatures’ and convection on plates and tool also) boundaries conditions And calculated results like deformation stress and heat flux etc. Here we also designed 3 more tools hexagonal and tapered and truncated and applied same boundary condition with same material properties and calculated all results from all these results which tool can be used in the place of circular tool.
