In recent decades, friction stir welding (FSW) has attracted extensive attention of academic and industrial sectors as the most considerable development in metal joining processes. FSW lap joint is an interesting alternative for rivets, fusion welds and bonding particularly in the transportation industry. In this paper, the effect of tool design and process parameters on the generated downward axial force and strength of AA6061-T6 lap joints is studied. The welds are made by a low-cost frictiondoi:10.3390/jmmp3030066 fatcat:xe3td5unnndbhloizygkrlewfe
