Friction stir welding (FSW) of aluminium and magnesium alloys face high demands in automotive and aerospace application due to its advanced and lightweight properties. FSW is an emerging solid state joining process in which the material that is being welded does not melt and recast. The main objectives of this project are to perform model updating based on finite element analysis (FEA) and experimental modal analysis (EMA) of dissimilar material of aluminium alloy AL 7075 and magnesium alloy AZ 31B. Modal properties such as natural frequencies, mode shapes are obtained and compared between FEA and EMA. The discrepancies of first five modes natural frequencies are below than 10% and the model updating have been conducted to minimize the error between two methods. This model updating are based on sensitivity analysis in order to make sure which parameters are given more influence in this structural dynamic analysis. Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio both materials are selected in the model updating process. After perform model updating, total average error of the natural frequencies of dissimilar friction stir welding plate is improved significantly.
