The 5th International Conference on Friction Stir Welding


Welding Research Institute – Industrial Insitute of SR presented succesfull results of its research in the field of friction stir welding as a perspective technology of welding. Conference was organized by french welding institute - Institut de Soudure and one of the most prestigious engineering schools in France - Arts & Métiers ParisTech.

The 5th International Conference on Friction stir Welding held on 11th - 13th October, 2017 in Metz, France, was an excellent intercommunication opportunity for researchers working in this multidisciplinary field of scientific endeavor. This conference brought together researchers, practitioners and new comers to the field in an international forum that addresses recent advances in friction stir welding and related processes. Presentations concerning all the steps from fundamental studies to applied aspects, from experimental to numerical research were presented.

Friction Stir Welding has been one of the most active research and development technology within the wide range of welding technologies. As a result of this research activity many applications have been introduced mainly in the manufacturing of lightweight structures for transport applications, although many other industrial applications have been developed.
