Abstract

   Solid state welding processes are superior to fusion welding in the sense that they are free from temperature effects and some welding defects. Bimetallic joints are mainly preferred to reduce cost and ease of manufacturing. FSSW process finds its extensive applications in many industrial sectors where self weight is considered as a predominant factor such as automotive, airplanes etc. In this investigation, aluminum alloy (AA6061) and copper alloy bimetallic joint is tested for its electrical resistivity and mechanical strength.
