Abstract:To simplify the recycling of automobiles, aluminium alloy sheets were joined by means of a self-piercing rivet. Although steel rivets used in conventional self-pierce riveting are removed from the aluminium alloy sheets in recycling, the removal is not required for aluminium alloy rivets. The joined sheets with the rivets are directly melted due to the same material, aluminium. For the joining of aluminium alloy sheet by the aluminium rivets, the joinability was improved by the designed shape of the rivet and … Show more
