GENERAL DYNAMICS CORP FORT WORTH TX
Pagination or Media Count:
A test was made to determine the yield and ultimate shear and bearing strengths of AN 509 screws, NAS 177 rivets, and RIV 165 rivets mounted in SAE 4130 and 17-7PH stainless steel sheet. Several sheet thicknesses were tested with each fastener. Fasteners from 316 in. to 12 in. diam and sheet thicknesses of from .025 in. to .312 in. were used. The data obtained are tabulated and graphs are presented showing the joint strength vs sheet thickness for each type of fastener tested.
