Because of the high complexity in microstructure evolution in friction stir welding, it becomes very difficult to design optimal welding parameters. To solve this problem, in the current paper, soft-computing-based data-driven models are developed to provide accurate and instant predictions for the welding process, and a multi-objective optimisation approach is employed to find optimal solutions to achieve the desired quality and economic objectives. The current work studies the aluminium AA5083-O as an example, where not only weld quality and mechanical properties of a joint, but also in-process properties and production cost, are considered as objectives in the optimal design.
