Abstract This report investigates microstructure-property relationships of AA6060 resulting from changes in welding parameters. Specifically, a rotational speed of 1115rpm is used with welding speeds of 50, 85, 150, 200, 250 mm/min for the joining of 3mm AA6060-T4 plates. A friction stir welding tool is design based on a literature review, and welds are made with a carbon steel and aluminium backing plate. Bend and hardness tests, along with microstructural analysis, aids in justifying an optimal rotational speed to welding speed ratio.
