CAM awarded an STDF project under the US-Egypt Science and Technology agreement on The Mechanics of Friction Stir Welding


The project is a joint collaboration between the Centre for Advanced Materials at The British University in Egypt led by Dr. Mostafa Shazly, Assistant Professor, and Professor Vikas Prakash of Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The primary objective of the proposed research is to determine friction and the plastic flow behavior of stainless steels and aluminum alloys at elevated temperatures and high slip rates. In order to achieve these goals the proposed study will focus on experiments to evaluate relevant frictional and material properties including uniaxial dynamic materials response at temperatures and high strain-rates, frictional behavior between aluminum/stainless steel and the tool material at high slip rates at elevated temperature, and verify existing mathematical models and/or develop new ones that adequately describe the friction stir welding process using the commercially available multi-physics software.
