Abstract—The friction Stir Welding is a process involving plastic deformation of the materials to be joined. This process does not involve the melting of the materials to be joined. This thing makes this process suitable for joining the different materials having different mechanical and chemical properties and different material structure. This review mainly providesfeasibility about the suitability of the FSW technique to join the various different materials/alloys.
