NBC's "Science of Innovation" series recently profiled Rajiv Mishra, the University of North Texas site director of the CFSP. The four-minute video introduces Friction Stir Welding and Friction Stir Processing as innovative technologies that can also support further innovation.
CFSP - South Dakota School of Mines & Technology - Friction stir welding has shown the potential to repair defective or damaged areas in metals, and to reduce scrap rates in welded parts by reworking select areas.
CFSP - Wichita State University - Advancements in weld tool designs for friction stir welding (FSW) have enabled the development of a prototype lightweight automotive bumper / crash box assembly.
CFSP - Brigham Young University - Figure 1 shows a weld that started in RPM control mode then given a temperature command 51°C lower than the current temperature. The overshoot was 29%, rise time 3.325 seconds, 10% settling time of 17.3 seconds and 1°C settling time of 29.5 seconds.
