In this paper, the single point incremental forming (SPIF) of friction stir welded (FSWed) 5083 aluminum alloy sheets are investigated experimentally and numerically. The aluminum sheets with 2mm thickness are friction stir welded with the same FSW parameters. In order to obtain the effect of FSW on the formability of SPIF, the base sheets and FSWed sheets are formed to conical shapes with different forming angles and then the limiting wall angles are determined for each condition. The experimental results indicate that the limiting forming angle of FSWed sheet is not so much different than the base sheet and FSW does not have a negative effect on the sheet metal formability in SPIF. To study the effect of SPIF and FSW in mechanical and microstructural properties of the formed parts, the effects of these process on the grain size and micro-hardness is investigated. Furthermore, the incremental forming is numerically simulated using the ABAQUS software and the sheet thickness distribution, obtained from the simulation, is compared with the experimental results. After verification of the numerical simulation model, the effect of FSW on the thickness distribution and strain distribution in SPIF is studied. The results indicate that in weld region and base metal region, the distributions of thickness and major strain are uniform while the distribution of minor strain is non-uniform.
