Abstract: In the bringout research work carried out the comparative study of weld characteristics of Aluminium Alloy AA2014-T6 weldments, joined by employing two processes namely Friction Stir Welding (FSW) and Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). FSW was performed with three different geometrical tool pin profiles like triangular, square, pentagon with process variables like tool rotational speed of 1400rpm, traverse speed of 86mm/min and tool tilt angle 3⁰. GTAW process was carried out by using constant current welding (CCW) and pulse current welding (PCW) at a frequencies of 2Hz and 4Hz respectively. This work lead to study the Ultimate Tensile Strength (UTS), 0.2%Yield Strength (YS) and % Elongation (%El) of AA2014-T6 weldments produced by FSW and GTAW.
