Accurate 3D friction stir welding simulation tool based on friction model calibration

Abstract : Friction Stir Welding (FSW) is one of the most effective solid states joining process and has numerous potential applications in many industries. A FSW numerical tool, based on Forge® F.E software, has been developed. Its main features are an Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian (ALE) formulation and an adaptive remeshing procedure based on error estimation. A 3D FSW simulation based on friction models calibration has been presented using Eulerian and ALE formulation. Two friction models have been studied to model friction in the tool-plate interface in aluminium alloy 6061-T6: Norton's and Coulomb's. Comparisons with experimental results considering various travel speed has been performed.
