Friction stir welding in energy applications
from Advanced Manufacturing
Prehistoric man, accustomed to making fire from striking two rocks together, would have understood the general idea of friction welding. But today’s concept uses friction to make something less than fire — it creates plasticity in metals, but keeps them several hundred degrees under their melting temperatures, then forges them together.
