The main aim of this experiment is to investigate the effects of Nano-size Al2O3 on the mechanical properties and microstructure of multi-passes friction stir welding of Al 2024 lap joint. Nano particles were added into the joint line. A combination of rotational speed and travelling speeds were performed. Optical microscopy and scanning electron microscope were used to investigate the microstructure and fracture surface of samples respectively. Optimum condition (sample) was selected due to highest ultimate tensile strength (UTS). It was seen that sample which included Nano particles and fabricated by 1400 rev/min rotational speed and 16 mm/min travelling speed in second pass of continues welding had improvement in UTS in comparison to one pass welded sample of particle free and after that increasing the number of passes reduce the UTS. The average micro hardness of the sample which was particle rich were increased in comparison to particle free sample in nugget zone. Increasing the number of passes was not effect average micro hardness in nugget zone significantly. Grain sizes were reduced by 2 passes welding and after that no significant reduction has been seen.
