Special Issue Information
With the continuous development of advanced manufacturing, the number of applications of nonferrous metals and their composites used in aerospace, rail transit, and high-speed ships has increased. Solid-state friction stir welding technology is strongly advantageous compared with traditional fusion welding technology. In addition, the severe plastic deformation during friction stir processing can effectively improve the comprehensive properties of the materials.
The main purpose of this Special Issue on “Friction Stir Welding and Processing of Nonferrous Metals and Their Composites” is to find solutions to the difficulties and challenges encountered in friction stir welding of nonferrous metals and their composites. The main content of this Special Issue includes but is not limited to the joining and fabrication methods of materials, the mechanism of deformation, similar and dissimilar materials friction stir welding, friction stir processing, energy field-assisted friction stir welding and processing, composite materials fabrication, deformation-driven metallurgy, numerical simulation, and welding tool design. The microstructure, mechanical properties, and functions of the joints will be analyzed to reveal the forming mechanism of friction stir welding joints and materials. Papers on nonferrous metals and their composites in the field of friction stir welding for the development of applications are welcome.
