Abstract: Friction stir spot welding (FSSW) is a pressure welding process where the workpieces are operated below their melting points. FSSW is one of the processes derived from Friction Stir Welding (FSW) Technology. Friction stir welding was invented by The Welding Institute (TWI) in 1991 and proven experimentally. FSSW is found to be environment friendly and a very efficient process. This process is rapidly growing and is replacing the resistance spot welding. FSSW have various applications which include industries like automobile, aerospace, ship building, construction and electrical. FSSW has been successfully used to join several materials used in the above mentioned industries. In this review, FSSW studies are briefly sum marised in terms different parameters for joining processes.
