This paper focuses on the effect of post weld heat treatment (PWHT) on microstructure and mechanical properties of dissimilar friction stir welding (FSW) of AA2024-T6 to AA6351-T6. FSW is getting widened to be used to join the aluminum alloys. PWHT of AA2024 and AA6351 aluminum alloys are not reported so far even though these alloys are widely used in aerospace and automobile industries. A post weld solution treatment and subsequent ageing resulted in improvement in mechanical properties (hardness and tensile strength)
