Abstract: The tensile strength and fatigue properties of Al5083-H111 welded with aluminium-magnesium alloyed ER5356 filler wire appeared similar to those of the base metal. This joint failed in the weld metal as a result of a slight reduction in hardness in the vicinity of the fusion line. However, the joints of Al6061-T651 similar and the dissimilar welds with Al5083-H111 displayed significant reduced strength and fatigue life due to lower hardness and tensile strength in the heat-affected zone.
