Abstract

Self-piercing riveting (SPR) is a high-speed mechanical joining technique for sheet metal materials. In this study, the mechanical properties of DC04 steel and AA5182 aluminium alloy in triple combinations joined by the SPR method were investigated. For this purpose, triple-joining processes were performed in different combinations, and macro-structural analysis and tensile shear tests were carried out by comparing their mechanical properties. As a result of the study, the highest shear forces were obtained in FFA (DC04-DC04-AA5182) and AFF (AA5182-DC04-DC04) combinations. As the number of aluminium layers increases, the probability of tearing increases in triple joining. Higher spread ratios were generally measured under conditions with hard materials in the upper layers and soft materials in the lower layers.
