Riveted Joint

Riveted Joint

 

the permanent joining of parts by means of rivets; used mainly for fastening sheet and shaped rolled metal. Riveting may be used in lap, abutment, and double-coverplate joints.

Riveted joints are being replaced by the more economical welded and glued joints. Until the appearance of welding, riveting was the main joining method used in the construction of metal bridges and hoisting cranes (stress-relieved or strong joints), boilers (tight stress-relieved or tight strong joints), and low-pressure tanks (tight joints). Riveted joints are used for parts made of materials that cannot be welded or heated, such as thin-walled parts (made of sheet material) in aircraft construction and in the manufacture of bus and trolleybus bodies, as well as for heavily loaded joints subject to impact and vibratory loads under operating conditions.
