Abstract [en]

The fatigue failure of friction stir (FS) welded aluminium panels of alloy 6005A has been analysed. Thesepanels are produced with two main joint geometries: namely half overlap and hourglass. Presence ofcrack like notches (interface between the welded work pieces) and blunt notches (corners and bendsin the base metal) have been studied with finite element method (FEM) stress analysis combined withthe critical distance method. It was shown that the failure location and fatigue limit could be predictedfor three of the four types of profiles considered. Choice of the welding procedure (clamping condition),however, can significantly influence the fatigue life and prediction accuracy. When different welding procedurewas used the weld failure was not reproduced by model and failure location was not predictedcorrectly. In this case fracture mechanics approach along with residual stress analysis has been used toanalyse the failure. It is also shown that local plastic deformation on the crack tip is induced by clampingresulting in tensile residual stresses at the crack tip. Taking stress intensity factor of the residual stressinto account, the position of the failure can be explained

Abstract [en]

Friction stir welding (FSW) is a low heat input solid state welding technology. It is often used for fabrication of aluminium alloys in transportation applications including railway, shipbuilding, bridge structures and automotive components. In these applications the material is frequently subject to varying load conditions and fatigue failure is a critical issue. In most cases standard codes and fatigue guidelines for aluminium welded joints address only welded structures with conventional welding methods but not those with FSW procedure. In the scope of this thesis fatigue life assessment of friction stir welded components was performed using theoretical approaches along with finite element method (FEM). The further aim of this study was to generate a basis for standardization of fatigue assessment of friction stir welded joints.

Friction stir welded hollow aluminium panels of alloy 6005A are investigated. The panels are used for train wall sides, train floors, deck and bridges. Each panel is made of several profiles that are joined with the friction stir welding method. Fatigue bending tests were performed for profiles in these panels. Fatigue cracks and failure appeared at notches in the profiles. With FEM simulations critical positions for crack initiation and failure were identified. The method of critical distance was used to analyse and estimate the fatigue life. It was shown that the failure location and fatigue limit could be predicted for both base metal and weld location. Choice of welding procedure (clamping condition) can significantly influence the fatigue life. It was shown that for some panels the critical distance method was not able to explain the failure in the weld. In this case fracture mechanics together with residual stress analysis were used successfully to predict the failure.

Assuming homogeneous material properties throughout the weld and the base material, FEM analysis for T and overlap joints as well can provide a reasonable fatigue prediction. This suggests that the same assumption can be extended to complex components for failure analysis of the friction stir welded joints when using the critical distance method.

Fatigue assessment of friction stir welded joints was also performed using standard codes Eurocode 9 and IIW. Fatigue curves of traditional fusion welded joints were used. The results are in reasonable agreement with experimental data and FEM predictions.
