In this study, the effect of friction time on microstructure and weldability of AISI 1030 steel with nickel interlayer and high chromium white cast iron welded by the friction welding method were investigated experimentally. The weld joints were produced with 2000 rpm rotational speed, under 80 MPa friction pressure, 150 MPa forging pressure, for 8 s forging time and 8, 10 and 12 s friction times. After the friction welding process, the microstructures of the weld interfaces were analyzed by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectrometry, elemental mapping and X-ray diffraction analysis. The results were lateron compared theoretically and experimentally. The increasing friction time led to high frictional heat input. The results indicated that friction time plays a vital role on the microstructure and weldability.
