Candidate Friction Welding Methods for Joining Aluminum to Steel — New Article

By Rebecca Gurk on Monday, June 27th, 2016


The joining aluminum and steel is encumbered by a range of metallurgical challenges including coefficient of thermal expansion and melting point differences, as well as the formation of deleterious intermetallics. Friction welding has demonstrated the capability to mitigate many of these challenges. When properly managed, friction welding facilitates control of temperatures and times in the joint, minimizing intermetallic formation and loss of properties.
