In the paper the continuous dynamic recrystallization (CDRX) phenomena occurring in the FSW of AA7075-T6 butt joints is investigated at the varying of the most relevant technological and geometrical parameters. In particular, both experiments and numerical simulations obtained utilizing a 3D Lagrangian implicit, coupled, rigid-viscoplastic model have been developed on FSW butt joints. The resulting microstructure at the core of the weldings is correlated to the material flow occurring during the FSW process.
