AbstractThe feasibility of measuring residual stresses in self-pierce riveted (SPR) joints by neutron diffraction technique was investigated. The main challenge involved dealing with the very small dimensions of SPR joints. Two different joints were examined: aluminium–steel and steel–steel. Even though small dimensions were involved, meaningful results were obtained. In the rivet head, tensile stress was observed for the steel–steel sample, whereas only compressive stress was observed for the a...

Abstract The development of the self-piercing riveting (SPR) technology in recent years has broadened the application of the technology in the automobile industry. However, the SPR process currently utilises high-strength steel rivets; and the combination between steel rivets with an aluminium car body makes recycling a challenge. The possibility of replacing a steel self-piercing rivet with an aluminium one has thus been raised as an interesting topic. Within this framework, the objective of th...

Self-piercing riveting (SPR) has become an interesting alternative joining technique for difficult to weld materials. A limitation of this technology is still the heavy experimental procedure needed for joint optimisation. In this paper, an experimental activity on Al6082-T4 sheet metal samples has been conducted to achieve a better understanding of the process. The joining process and the tensile tests have then been simulated using a FE code to predict deformed shape, failure mechanism (e.g. c...

The development of reliable numerical models permits to investigate the manufacturing processes with very low incremental costs or prototyping efforts hence it provides a relevant help in process optimisation and gives great opportunity for making maximum use of sparse process data [Shercliff HR, Lovatt AM. Selection of manufacturing process in design and the role of process modelling. Prog Mater Sci 2001;46:429-59]. Among others the metal forming processes have heavily benefited from the finite...

Self-pierce riveting (SPR) is becoming increasingly used in the automotive industry as a way to join materials of different nature. In this paper we focus on the numerical modeling of the SPR process and to the final assembly mechanical strength. The simulation of such a joining process requires contact between deformable bodies, plastic deformation, damage and fracture. The Forge2005® finite element software enables to model large deformation of elastic-plastic materials for 2D and 3D configura...

Abstract A new method of predicting neck formation in sheets under non-proportional loading is proposed, based on the concept of “cumulative forming severity”. This concept is borrowed from a macroscopic model of ductile fracture where the crack initiation is governed by the accumulated equivalent plastic strain modified by the stress triaxiality and the Lode angle parameter. Such an approach necessitates a representation of the forming limit diagram (FLD) in the space of the equivalent strain t...

Results are shown in impulse joining of aluminium sheets with self-pierce-riveting. Two institutes are testing impulse-riveting with different setting velocities of the punch – up to 10 m/s by using pneumatic cylinders and about 100 m/s by using a propellant charge. One aim focus consists in riveting without a C-frame against a flat anvil instead of using a C-frame with a contoured die. So accessibility is increased and disadvantages of occurring misalignments are avoidable. The strength propert...

Numerical modeling of the SPR process can be very efficient way for optimization of the strength of a joint obtained by this method. During numerical simulation one of the important problems is to define precisely the moment of upper layer separation leading to rivet penetration of lower layer(s). In the paper, a review of selected material separation criteria available in commercial MSC software applied for the SPR process simulation is presented.

A study examining the fatigue failure mechanism of self-piercing riveted (SPR) joints between aluminum alloy 6111-T4 and 5754-O is presented in this paper. In particular, the high-cycle fatigue behavior of the SPR joints in the lap-shear configuration is characterized. Experimental fatigue testing revealed that failure of SPR joints occurred because of cracks propagating through the sheet thickness at locations away from the rivet. In-depth postmortem analysis showed that significant fretting we...

Self-piercing riveting (SPR) is a method used for joining sheet materials by creating a mechanical interlock between the sheets. SPR is of increasing interest in automobile industries due to its suitability for joining lightweight, high strength and dissimilar materials. The quality of an SPR joint from cross-sectional perspective is primarily characterized by the amount of mechanical interlock known as rivet flaring. Other parameters, such as rivet head height, bottom thickness and effective le...

Abstract Mixed-mode fatigue crack growth behavior of an automotive adhesive bonding system (AA5754O- A951-BM4601) has been investigated using a compound compact mixed-mode specimen. The test was performed under load control with 0.1 R ratio and 3Hz frequency. A long-distance moving microscope was employed to record the real-time length of the fatigue crack in the adhesive layer during testing. The strain energy release rate components of the crack were analyzed by finite element method. The pure...

Abstract To increase fuel efficiency and reduce emission, aluminium alloys have been increasingly used in automotive body-in-white structures for lightweighting. Due to its advantages over some of the more traditional joining technologies, self-piercing riveting (SPR) has been widely used for these lightweight structures. Research has showed that friction is a very important factor that influences both the riveting process and joint strength for SPR, but these influences have not been fully unde...

Abstract The fatigue behavior of self-piercing riveted (SPR) joints of aluminum alloy 6111-T4 has been experimentally and numerically investigated in current study. The dominant fatigue failure mode under tensile-shear (TS) loading is the corner crack at riveted hole with approximate quarter-elliptical crack front, and interrupted tests revealed that the crack growth life was much shorter than crack initiation life. A fatigue parameter, Smith-Watson-Topper (SWT) was proposed for crack initiation...

Abstract The fatigue behavior of self-piercing riveted joints of aluminum alloy AA6111-T4 and steel HSLA340 sheets has been experimentally and numerically investigated in present paper. Fatigue results reveal that the mating sheet stiffness and load ratio have significant impact on the fatigue strength, and the dominant failure mode under tensile–shear loading is eyebrow crack with an approximately semi-elliptical crack front. New stress intensity factor equations are derived for a semi-elliptic...

Abstract The fatigue behavior of self-piercing rivet (SPR) joints joining differing thicknesses of AA6111-T4 aluminum and HSLA340 steel sheets in lap shear geometry was investigated in this paper. Crack initiation in the aluminum sheet was the dominant failure mode, while unexpected rivet shank failure tended to occur at high loading levels. Fretting wear was also observed at interface between aluminum and steel sheets as well as between the rivet and sheets under sinusoidal cyclic tension–tensi...
