In present study, Dissimilar Friction Stir Butt Welds made of 2014 and 6061 Aluminium alloys were performed with various welding parameter. The present study deals with the influence of Square Profile Pin on Friction Stir Welded joint. FSW parameter such as Tool Rotational Speed, Welding Speed and Axial Force plays a significant role in the assessment of mechanical properties. Using ANOVA and Signal to Noise ratio, influence of FSW process parameters is evaluated and optimum welding condition for maximizing mechanical properties of the joint is determined. An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model was developed for the analysis and simulation of the correlation between the Friction Stir Welding (FSW) parameters of aluminium (Al) plates and mechanical properties and compared the experimental values with the ANN predicted values.
