Friction Stir Processing


Program Manager: Leo Christodoulou, Ph. D.

logoFriction Stir Processing established a process for inducing directed, localized, and controlled materials properties in any arbitrary location and pattern to achieve revolutionary capability in high value-added components.

The objectives of the Friction Stir Processing (FSP) Program were to (1) establish practical processing windows for thick sections castings and fusion weldment modification and (2) demonstrate reproducible and substantially improved mechanical, corrosion, and formability properties. Specifically, the program established means and procedures so that Friction Stir Processing will result in a DoD capability to achieve increased performance in high-value articles.
