Paper Title:
Study of Fretting Fatigue Crack Initiation For Riveted Al 6xxx Components
  Abstract

Riveting is a procedure widely used for fitting together two or more elements of a structure, that could be of the same or different material. In these assemblies the stress field is complex and a number of parameters, including effect of the geometrical discontinuities, contact between elements, tightening, material properties and applied load must be considered. The current work focuses on the study of fretting fatigue crack formation in common 6XXX aluminum alloys, used in land transportation equipments, and the determination of the characteristic crack initiation sites by means of both experimental and numerical methods. 3D finite element models were validated by the experimental results obtained with strain gauges. The influence of the contact friction coefficient at the fretting surface and fastening forces on the initiation of cracks, are discussed by the comparison of the different numerical results.
