An investigation into joining of austenitic‐stainless steels (AISI 304) with friction welding
Article publication date: 1 June 2005
Aims to determine if friction welding is suitable for welding austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304)
Uses an experimental continuous drive friction welding set‐up. Determined the strength, hardness and microstructure of the joined parts.
Finds that the joint strengths are 96 per cent of those of the base metals with no significant hardening.
Friction welding is an appropriate joining method for austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304).
Aids in understanding appropriate uses of friction welding for joining stainless steel.
