International Journal of Modelling, Identification and Control (IJMIC), Vol. 7, No. 4, 2009

Abstract: Reliability of the electrical contact riveting process is studied with the aid of non-linear finite element analysis modelling and experimental techniques. The modelling is performed within ALGOR platform and its validity is assessed through a purpose built riveting test rig. A close correlation is observed between the results of FE model and the test rig.
