Abstract: The present work discusses about the introduction of silver interlayer in dissimilar friction welding process. The characteristics of silver interlayer influenced friction weld are compared with the silver free dissimilar friction welding process. Particle fracture occurs commonly in welding process. It leads to poor quality of welds and decreases the strength of the weld. The introduction of silver interlayer reduces the particle fracture. Hence, the friction welding process with silver interlayer produces more efficient welds.
