Friction stir welding is a solid phase welding method which takes place in non-traditional welding techniques and the industrial applications of this method intensify in recent years. In this method, parts in various geometries can be joined in solid state and not using extra metal. Friction stir welding that has limited and very little usage in developing countries at industrial meaning are heavily used in aerospace, automotive and marine industry and supplies advantage for same and different material joining with low distortion after welding process according to the other special welding methods. In this study, Al – Mg based AA 5083-H111 aluminum alloys, which are widely used in industry, were joined with friction stir welding method and then mechanical properties of the joints were obtained. Obtained results in the tests were compared with the other researches.
