Abstract

In this paper, friction stir processing (FSP) was used to refine the microstructure of the copper alloy using various parameters. The influence of the tool rotation and traverse speeds on the microstructural and mechanical properties of the processed copper alloy was measured and analyzed. Micro-hardness measurements were used to evaluate the mechanical properties of the material. The results show that copper alloy processed by FSP has an enhanced micro-hardness property than the unprocessed copper alloy, this makes the materials processed by FSP appropriate for use in industrial applications.
