Mechanical Behaviors of Self-Piercing Riveting Joining Dissimilar Sheets
This paper summarizes riveting tests and mechanical behaviors of Self-piercing Riveting (SPR) with semi-tubular rivet joining dissimilar metal sheets. The tests joining 2A12 aluminum sheet and DC01 steel sheet are carried out in lap-shear, coach-peel and cross-tension joint styles. The results show that SPR joining dissimilar materials of steel and aluminum alloy is feasible and riveting joints take on high mechanical behavior.
