Technology developments of Friction stir processing to produce functionally graded materials and improve surfaces for advanced engineering applications - FRISURF

The project envisaged exploiting Friction Stir Processing (FSP) by: - understanding tool effect for both surface and in-volume processing. - developing strategies for surface modification in order to improve high-strain rate superplasticity and other properties such as formability, fatigue and wear; - exploiting manufacturing of functionally graded materials (FGMs) as an alternative technique to powder metallurgy.

 

Partners: FCT, IST, UNIDEMI, CENIMAT

 

Funding organization: Science and Technology Foundation (PT)

 

Main achievements: Considerable knowledge was acquired in two main areas: - Production of FGMs in Al reinforced with silicon carbide and alumina particles - Production of coatings in aluminium alloys and steels by friction surfacing (FS) with nanostructured structures, very hard and with high wear resistances
