A few different carbon addition processes are combined with friction stir welding or friction stir spot welding to fabricate carbon/aluminum metal matrix composite (MMC) joints. For carbon addition processes, friction solid coating using a stick of graphite, graphite lubricant spraying, adhesive with graphite powder on the surface, and nano-particle deposition system are considered. The results of mechanical tests and microstructural analysis confirm that carbon/aluminum MMC is successfully fabricated for all the selected addition processes. The results of mechanical tests show that the strength and toughness of the joint are clearly improved by inducing MMC for all cases.
