A Performance Study on Self-Piercing Riveting and Adhesive Hybrid Joints of Different Adhesive


Article Preview

This paper studied the performance of self-piercing riveting (SPR) and adhesive hybrid joints of different adhesive, including strength, capacity of energy absorption, failure mode and failure mechanism of the hybrid joints. The performances of SPR-adhesive hybrid joints were compared with SPR joints. SPR-adhesive hybrid joints and SPR joints were tested under a tension loading. The test results showed that adhesive have a function of improving the strength of SPR joints; however, the capacity of energy absorption of SPR joints was weakened. While the adhesive have no effect on the failure modes of SPR joints. When appropriate adhesive was selected, the overall performance of SPR-adhesive hybrid joints was superior to SPR joints. In a word, the combination of SPR and adhesive could get a well jointing structure.
