Aluminum extrusions and friction stir welding in the construction industry has become increasingly popular in recent years. Some applications include aluminum bridges, panels made from aluminum, and aluminum suspended systems. Aluminum use in bridges has numerous benefits such as a high strength to weight ratio, no necessary maintenance, and no corrosion. Steel is very heavy and more popular on bridges. Aluminum has a higher load-bearing capacity and would make a much better alternative. The resulting bridge would have a higher performance rating and it would cost less to transport and install. Aluminum bridges require little, if any maintenance because of the natural protective coating of the metal.

Construction in the 1930’s saw the first uses of aluminum. The Empire State Building was the first building to make major use of aluminum components and fabricated structures. Since then, aluminum panels can be friction stir welded in advance for construction purposes. Aluminum has several benefits for construction. It is eco-friendly, adds speed to construction, and can provide insulation for buildings.
