Article Preview

In this paper, the technology of self-piercing riveting (SPR) with half-hollow rivets was investigated using experiments and numerical simulations with 6063 aluminum alloy sheet. The failure mechanism of SPR aluminum alloy sheet was indicated with the shear model and tear model, which could accurately simulate the sheet structure. Based on the simulation results with finite element method (FEA), the effect of die geometry on static mechanical characteristics, including punch load, failure load and failure displacement, was analyzed. It was discovered that the die pip height and sheet thickness should be designed synthetically for optimal tensile behavior.
