Joining in the thixotropic state is considered to be an effective alternative joining method in which the material is processed when it is in a semisolid state between solidus and liquidus temperatures, that is, when the material shows thixotropic behaviour.
Following on the work of Spencer et al., which identified the essential thixotropic properties [1], semisolid metal (SSM) processing received considerable attention around the world owing to its ability to facilitate high-quality production at a relatively lower cost when compared with conventional processes.
