Torque Control of Friction Stir Welding

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,998.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
William R. Longhurst, Principal Investigator
Research Institution:
Vanderbilt University
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

Award Amount:
$125,000.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
George E. Cook, Associate Dean
Research Institution:
Vanderbilt University
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
