Torque Control of Friction Stir Welding

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Research Institution: Vanderbilt University
Principal Investigator: William R. Longhurst, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,998.00
RI Contact: John T. Childress
Abstract:
Longhurst Engineering, PLC and Vanderbilt University propose the innovation of torque control of friction stir welding (FSW) as a replacement to force control of FSW. The value of the torque is significant because it indicates how far the tool is plunged into the work piece. Proper engagement of… More

In-Space Friction Stir Welding Machine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Research Institution: Vanderbilt University
Principal Investigator: George E. Cook, Associate Dean
Award Amount: $125,000.00
RI Contact: Jeffrey Newman
Abstract:
Longhurst Engineering, PLC, and Vanderbilt University propose an in-space friction stir welding (FSW) machine for joining complex structural aluminum components. The proposed FSW machine is innovative because it can be deployed by 2 people and be used to weld complex surfaces that extend beyond… More
