Being the structural component applications of Aluminum 6082-T6, the trend of experimentation in friction stir processing (FSP) has gained attention during the last decade and so. As FSP is a solid-state processing technique that provides conferred desired values of tensile strength, percentage elongation, the present motive of research is to obtain a set of optimized values for parameters of the process (like the tool rotation speed, traverse speed, and the number of passes). Twenty runs using three factors, three levels, which are chosen by CCD (central composite design) under randomized RSM (response surface method) reflected experimental results with the practical results. The optimized values of tensile strength and percentage elongation (responses) are 179 Mpa and 14.3% respectively also investigated values of input parameters such as tool rotation, traverse and the number of passes are 1284 rpm, 65mm/min, and 1 respectively.
