In this study AA2024 alloy, which is used especially in aircraft body, wings and automotive industry due to its
lightness, workable aspect, high corrosion resistance and durability, was welded with stir friction method, and
fatigue, hardness, bending and tension experiments of the joints obtained were conducted. Welding progress
speed of the 4 mm thick sheets and stir tool rotation were determined to be the variable parameters. These
parameters were taken as 20 mm shoulder width, 1000 rpm traverse speed, 1500 rpm, 2500 rpm and the
progress speed was taken as 120 mm/min and 200 mm/min.
