    • Abstract


      In the present study an attempt was made to join austenitic stainless steel (AISI 304) with low alloy steel (AISI 1021) at five different rotational speeds ranging from 800 to 1600 rpm and at as many different axial pressures ranging from 75 MPa to 135 MPa and then determining the strength of the joint by means of tensile strength. Furthermore scanning electron microscope analysis was performed to evaluate the pattern of failure at the fractured locations, also the micro hardness was checked at the weld interface and at distances on either side of the weld joint to evaluate the effect of heat. The highest tensile strength achieved by the welded specimens was 1.8% higher than the AISI 1021 steel and the lowest tensile strength obtained was 20% lower than the parent AISI 1021.
