Abstract : Rivets are suitable for joining aircraft structures and components. But although rivets are generally easily set, they may be loosened during vehicle operation. Welding of the rivets is not entirely satisfactory. Rivets and method of riveting are provided for use in aircraft and other applications in which vibrations and thermal stresses reduce the effectiveness of conventional riveting. (Author)
