In terms of mechanical and metallurgical characteristics, the effect of tool plunge depths(0.2, 0.5, 0.7, 1.0, 1.5mm) on weldability in dissimilar Al5083-O/DP590 friction spot joint has been clarified. From the results, it is found that the stirred nugget was stably formed at a plunge depth of more than 0.7mm, which is caused by improved stirring action against each other material. With increasing a plunge depth, the thickness of intermetallic compound(IMC) layer in Al5083-O/DP590 joint has a tendency to increase. The tensile shear strength reaches to the maximum failure load of 6.5kN at a plunge depth of 0.7mm due to relatively small decrease in the thickness of Al5083-O sheet and relatively minute thickness of IMC layer, compared with those of other plunge depth conditions.
