Experimental and numerical investigations have been performed in order to study the effect of welding parameters on properties of FSW-ed AZ31 magnesium alloy sheets. The results, presented in terms of tensile strength and numerical field variables distributions, allow to understand the behaviour of such material when FSW-ed using different rotational and welding speeds for a given tool geometry.
