A body of detailed stress and strain distributions in the vicinity of interference fit fasteners has been analytically obtained and is presented. These data, obtained on simple installations, present trends which may be used by designers in determining how or whether to use interference fit fasteners. The analysis was performed with a finite element digital procedure which has the nonlinear constitutive behavior programmed and interrelates internal loading and deformations. Preparations for the analysis of thirty six conditions included analyzing a test article for which good correlations are shown.
