Friction stir welding is a brand-new welding technique that was discovered in 1991 by Wayne Thomas in United Kingdom. It is a form of solid state welding in which a non-consumable electrode is used to unite two work components without melting either of them. The mechanical characteristics and numerous microscopic studies of materials used for friction stir welding, such as duplex stainless steel UNS S31803, SA 213 tube to SA387, Al7075 alloy, and AA6061 metal, are reviewed. Here, welded areas were the primary focus of the microscopic study, and the diverse outcomes are also discussed.
