Friction stir welding is an efficient joining process used to join many metallic materials used in aerospace and automotive applications. Different tooling and welding properties results in different microstructures and will ultimately affect the mechanical properties of the weld. We Aim at predicting the behavior of the weld in different loading conditions, using a microstructurally-informed continuum dislocation dynamics model based on experimental data obtained in different zones of the weld. Our model can predict the response of different regions of the weld as well as the overall response of the inhomogeneous microstructure across the welded region. We validate the outputs of our model comparing against tensile tests performed on single weld zones and welded sheets with weld seam oriented at different angles.
