Joining Processes by Plastic Deformation

Abstract:

Article Preview

As the scale and complexity of products such as aircraft and cars increase, demand for new functional processes to join mechanical parts grows. The use of plastic deformation for joining parts potentially offers improved accuracy, reliability and environmental safety as well as creating opportunities to design new products through joining dissimilar materials. This paper aims to provide an overview of the state of the art in such joining processes, including cold welding, friction stir welding, joining by forming, self-pierce riveting and mechanical clinching. The paper includes description of the mechanism of joint formation, joint strength and applicability.
