This paper focused on the Mechanical and Microstructural changes of aluminum alloy 6082-T6 welded joints formed by Friction Stir Welding Technique by varying process. Parameters such as tool rotational speed, welding speed, shoulder geometries, tool tilt angleetc. This paper have not any Experimental procedure and values because it is only a Review to gain knowledge about the Mechanical and Microstructural changes and it's Analysis. The effect of various process parameters on Micro hardness of the joints is also studied. As FSW joining takes place below the melting temperature of the base material Due to which all the defects related to melting is automatically removed. The review helps in selection of important process parameters as the quality of weld joint depends on these welding input parameters and in optimization of these parameters.
