Abstract

The effect of cold rolling, performed after friction stir welding (FSW), on the mechanical properties and formability of joints in AA5754-H114 aluminium alloy was investigated. Friction stir welding was carried out on 2.5 mm thick sheets with constant values of rotational and welding speeds of 1200 rpm and 100 mm/min, respectively. Then, FSWed workpieces were cold rolled, with the rolling direction perpendicular to the welding line, in order to obtain height reductions ranging from 0.1 to 0.5 mm. Cold rolling with the same height reductions was also carried out on the base material in the as-received condition. The mechanical properties and formability of both friction stir welded joints and base material, before and after cold rolling, were evaluated by means of the uniaxial tensile and hemispherical punch tests. The nominal stress vs. nominal strain and punch force vs. punch stroke curves were analysed in detail. Finally, the scanning electron microscope fractography was used to evaluate the fractured surface of tensile samples.
