AbstractThis chapter first reviews several aspects of the riveting process to ensure that riveted joints will have excellent fatigue performance. These aspects include solid rivets, joint design rules, several experimental and numerical methods to determine the residual stress/strain and interference in riveted joints, and the current approach for studying the riveting process. It then provides two case studies using experimental and finite element methods to explore: (i) the effect of the riveting process on the residual stress/strain in joints: and (ii) the stress condition in riveted lap joints when the joints are remotely loaded in tension. Concluding remarks on the potential development direction of the riveting tools and rivets are briefly provided.
