Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, a novel surface modifying technique, friction stir processing (FSP), has been developed for microstructural modification and fabrication of surface coatings of metallic materials based on the basic principles of friction stir welding. The conventional surface modification techniques including high-energy laser/electron beam surface treatment and thermal spraying are generally based on liquid phase processing at high temperatures. In the case of fabricating the surface composites, it is very difficult to avoid the interfacial reaction between reinforcement and metal matrix and formation of some detrimental phases. On the other hand, FSP is a solid-state surface modification process, which causes severe plastic deformation, mixing of material and lower temperature exposure, leading to significant microstructural refinement, densification, and homogeneity of the processed layer. Difficulties encountered in the fusion route of surface modification like cracks, porosity, segregation and grain growth can be overcome by FSP. This Special Issue is dedicated to highlighting the recent advances and innovations in "New Coating Materials", "Processing Conditions" and "Applications" for FSP. The goal of this Special Issue is to collect original research articles, as well as critical reviews and perspectives from academics and industry.

Friction stir processing (FSP) is a novel solid-phase processing technique that is derived from friction stir welding (FSW). The microstructure of the base metal can be modified with the friction heat and stir function during processing. It can be used to fabricate surface composites and in situ composites by adding reinforced particles into the metal matrix via FSP. Friction stir processing can significantly improve the hardness, wear resistance, ductility, etc., while preventing defects caused by material melting. It is an ideal material processing technology and has good prospects in the field of superplastic materials and for the preparation of metal matrix composites. This paper reviews research developments into the principle, process, and applications of FSP technology as well as its future research directions and development prospects. Full article
