Because there is effectively a head on each end of an installed rivet, it can support tension loads (loads parallel to the axis of the shaft); however, it is much more capable of supporting shear loads (loads perpendicular to the axis of the shaft).
Fastenings used in traditional wooden boat building, such as copper nails and clinch bolts, work on the same principle as the rivet but were in use long before the term rivet was introduced and, where they are remembered, are usually classified among nails and bolts respectively.
Solid rivets are one of the oldest and most reliable types of fasteners, having been found in archaeological findings dating back to the Bronze Age. Riveting team working on the cockpit shell of a C-47 transport at the plant of North American Aviation.
Structural steel rivets like this one were used in the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in the 1930s.
Such riveted structures may be insufficient to resist seismic loading from earthquakes if the structure was not engineered for such forces, a common problem of older steel bridges. Semi-tubular rivets (also known as tubular rivets) are similar to solid rivets, except they have a partial hole (opposite the head) at the tip. Blind rivets, commonly referred to as "pop" rivets (POP is the brand name of the original manufacturer, now owned by Stanley Engineered Fastening, a division of Stanley Black & Decker) are tubular and are supplied with a mandrel through the center. Due to this feature, blind rivets are used mainly when access to the joint is available from only one side. Prior to the adoption of blind rivets, installation of a solid rivet typically required access to both sides of the assembly: a rivet hammer on one side and a bucking bar on the other side.
There is a vast array of specialty blind rivets that are suited for high strength or plastic applications. Internally and externally locked structural blind rivets can be used in aircraft applications because, unlike other types of blind rivets, the locked mandrels cannot fall out and are watertight. The typical assembly process requires the operator to install the rivet in the nose of the tool by hand and then actuate the tool. While structural blind rivets using a locked mandrel are common, there are also aircraft applications using "non-structural" blind rivets where the reduced, but still predictable, strength of the rivet without the mandrel is used as the design strength. Oscar rivets are similar to blind rivets in appearance and installation, but have splits (typically three) along the hollow shaft. A version of the Oscar rivet is the Olympic rivet which uses an aluminum mandrel that is drawn into the rivet head.
A drive rivet is a form of blind rivet that has a short mandrel protruding from the head that is driven in with a hammer to flare out the end inserted in the hole. A flush rivet is used primarily on external metal surfaces where good appearance and the elimination of unnecessary aerodynamic drag are important. These resemble an expanding bolt except the shaft snaps below the surface when the tension is sufficient. One early form of blind rivet that was the first to be widely used for aircraft construction and repair was the Cherry friction-lock rivet. Cherry friction-lock rivets are available in two head styles, universal and 100 degree countersunk.
Self-pierce riveting (SPR) is a process of joining two or more materials using an engineered rivet.
SPRs are cold forged to a semi-tubular shape and contain a partial hole to the opposite end of the head. The self-pierce rivet fully pierces the top sheet material(s) but only partially pierces the bottom sheet. Rivets need to be harder than the materials being joined, they are heat treated to various levels of hardness depending on the materials ductility and hardness. Riveting systems can be manual or automated depending on the application requirements; all systems are very flexible in terms of product design and ease of integration into a manufacturing process. SPR joins a range of dissimilar materials such as steel, aluminum, plastics, composites and pre-coated or pre-painted materials. The main official standards relate more to technical parameters such as ultimate tensile strength and surface finishing than physical length and diameter. Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) Imperial Standard, NASM is an acronym for National Aerospace Standards, MIL-STD. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) 18-digit PIN code Imperial system is approved by ANSI and adopted by the U.S.
The Society of Automotive Engineers is a worldwide organization that provides (mostly Imperial) specifications for design and testing for components used in the automotive industry. Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) is a metric system largely based on DIN with some minor modifications to meet the needs of the Japanese market, nortably used in Japanese electronic equipment.
Deutsches Institut fA?r Normung is the German national metric standard used in most European countries because it closely resembles the newer International Standards Organizations (ISO) specifications. Rivet diameters are commonly measured in 1a?„32-inch increments[10] and their lengths in 1a?„16-inch increments, expressed as "dash numbers" at the end of the rivet identification number. To become a proper fastener, a rivet should be placed in hole ideally 4a€“6 thousandths of an inch larger in diameter. Before welding techniques and bolted joints were developed, metal framed buildings and structures such as the Eiffel Tower, Shukhov Tower and the Sydney Harbour Bridge were generally held together by riveting.
Rivets were also used in many tanks during World War II by a large number of countries including the M3 Lee (General Grant) manufactured in the United States. Common but more exotic uses of rivets are to reinforce jeans and to produce the distinctive sound of a sizzle cymbal. Rivets small enough and soft enough are often bucked.[11] In this process the installer places a rivet gun against the factory head and holds a bucking bar against the tail or a hard working surface.
A hammer is also used to "ring" an installed rivet, as a non-destructive test for tightness and imperfections.
A blind rivet has strength properties that can be measured in terms of shear and tensile strength. The shear test involves installing a rivet into two plates at specified hardness and thickness and measuring the force necessary to shear the plates.

Before being installed, a rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. Solid rivets consist simply of a shaft and head that are deformed with a hammer or rivet gun.
A typical application for solid rivets can be found within the structural parts of aircraft. Solid rivets are driven using a hydraulically, pneumatically, or electromagnetically driven squeezing tool or even a handheld hammer.
Rivets were placed in the furnace and heated to a glowing hot temperature often to white heat as the hotter the temperature the more plastic and easily deformed is the rivet. This is due to the fact that a hot rivet cannot be properly heat treated to add strength and hardness.
The purpose of this hole is to reduce the amount of force needed for application by rolling the tubular portion outward.
The rivet assembly is inserted into a hole drilled through the parts to be joined and a specially designed tool is used to draw the mandrel into the rivet. The rivet is placed in a drilled hole and is set by pulling the mandrel head into the rivet body, expanding the rivet body and causing it to flare against the reverse side. Blind rivets are made from soft aluminum alloy, steel (including stainless steel), copper, and Monel. Since the mandrel is locked into place, they have the same or greater load-carrying capacity as solid rivets and may be used to replace solid rivets on all but the most critical stressed aircraft structures. However, in recent years automated riveting systems have become popular in an effort to reduce assembly costs and repetitive disorders.
A method popularized by Chris Heintz of Zenith Aircraft uses a common flat-head (countersunk) rivet which is drawn into a specially machined nosepiece that forms it into a round head rivet, taking up much of the variation inherent in hole size found in amateur aircraft construction. These splits cause the shaft to fold and flare out (similar to the wings on a toggle bolt's nut) as the mandrel is drawn into the rivet. After installation, the head and mandrel are shaved off flush resulting in an appearance closely resembling a brazier head driven rivet. This is commonly used to rivet wood panels into place since the hole does not need to be drilled all the way through the panel, producing an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
A flush rivet takes advantage of a countersink hole; they are also commonly referred to as countersunk rivets. Originally, Cherry friction-locks were available in two styles, hollow shank pull-through and self-plugging types. When a friction-lock is used to replace a solid shank rivet, it must be at least one size larger in diameter because the friction-lock rivet loses considerable strength if its center stem falls out due to vibrations or damage.
Unlike solid, blind and semi-tubular rivets, self-pierce rivets do not require a drilled or punched hole. The end geometry of the rivet has a chamfered poke that helps the rivet pierce the materials being joined, a hydraulic or electric servo rivet setter drives the rivet into the material, and an upsetting die provides a cavity for the displaced bottom sheet material to flow. As the tail end of the rivet does not break through the bottom sheet it provides a water or gas tight joint. Rivets come in a range of diameters and lengths depending on the materials being joined, head styles are either flush countersunk or pan heads.
Benefits include low energy demands, no heat, fumes, sparks or waste and very repeatable quality.
DIN fasteners use a DIN style identifier plus the material and the finish or plating (if any). Clarified ISO standards for (metric) fasteners are rapidly gaining international recognition in preference to the similar DIN, on which SI was originally based.
A "dash 3 dash 4" (XXXXXX-3-4) designation indicates a 3a?„32-inch diameter and 4a?„16-inch (or 1a?„4-inch) length. This allows the rivet to be easily and fully inserted, then setting allows the rivet to expand, tightly filling the gap and maximizing strength. Conveniently, the rivet diameter relates to the drill required to make a hole to accept the rivet, rather than the actual diameter of the rivet, which is slightly smaller.
However, many countries soon learned that rivets were a large weakness in tank design, since if a tank was hit by a large projectile it would dislocate the rivets and they would fly around the inside of the tank and injure or kill the crew, even if the projectile didn't penetrate the armor.
The inspector taps the head (usually the factory head) of the rivet with the hammer while touching the rivet and base plate lightly with the other hand and judges the quality of the audibly returned sound and the feel of the sound traveling through the metal to the operator's fingers. Occasionally rivets also undergo performance testing for other critical features, such as pushout force, break load and salt spray resistance.

Brown at Colonna's Shipyard, a ship repair facility located in the Port of Norfolk, Virginia. Indeed, the latest steel construction specifications published by AISC (the 14th Edition) no longer covers their installation. The rivet warmer or heater or "cook" used tongs to individually remove rivets and throw them to a catcher stationed near the joints to be riveted.
In the seismic retrofit of such structures it is common practice to remove critical rivets with an oxygen torch, precision ream the hole, and then insert a machined and heat treated bolt.
As the head of the mandrel reaches the face of the blind side material, the pulling force is resisted, and at a predetermined force, the mandrel snaps at its break point, also called blind setting. The cost of such tools range from US$1,500 for autofeed pneumatics to US$50,000 for fully robotic systems.


This flare (or flange) provides a wide bearing surface that reduces the chance of rivet pull-out. They are used in repair of Airstream trailers to replicate the look of the original rivets. They can also be used with plastic, metal, and other materials and require no special setting tool other than a hammer and possibly a backing block (steel or some other dense material) placed behind the location of the rivet while hammering it into place. Countersunk or flush rivets are used extensively on the exterior of aircraft for aerodynamic reasons. The pull-through type is no longer common, however, the self -plugging Cherry friction-lock rivet is still used for repairing light aircraft. With the influence of the upsetting die, the tail end of the rivet flares and interlocks into the bottom sheet forming a low profile button. Rivets are typically fed to the rivet setter nose from tape and come in cassette or spool form for continuous production. Some rivets lengths are also available in half sizes, and have a dash number such as a€“3.5 (7a?„32 inch) to indicate they are half-size. This facilitates the use of a simple drill-gauge to check both rivet and drill are compatible. Riveting is still widely used in applications where light weight and high strength are critical, such as in an aircraft.
Some countries such as Italy, Japan, and Britain used rivets in some or all of their tank designs throughout the war for various reasons, such as lack of welding equipment or inability to weld very thick plates of armor effectively. Rivets fill the hole where they are installed to establish a very tight fit (often called interference fit).
The rivet gun provides a series of high-impulse forces that upsets and work hardens the tail of the rivet between the work and the inertia of the bucking bar.
The hammer is applied to the buck-tail of the rivet, rolling an edge so that it is flush against the material. A rivet tightly set in its hole returns a clean and clear ring, while a loose rivet produces a recognizably different sound. The other part is referred to as the bucktail, and is the part that the bucking bar is held against. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
This tool is mainly used on rivets close to the edge of the fastened material, since the tool is limited by the depth of its frame.
The reason for the change is primarily due to the expense of skilled workers required to install high strength structural steel rivets. The catcher (usually) caught the rivet in a leather or wooden bucket with an ash-lined bottom, placed the glowing hot rivet into the hole to be riveted, and then quickly turned around to await the next rivet. Tubular rivets are sometimes preferred for pivot points (a joint where movement is desired) since the swelling of the rivet is only at the tail. These types of blind rivets have non-locking mandrels and are sometimes avoided for critical structural joints because the mandrels may fall out, due to vibration or other reasons, leaving a hollow rivet that has a lower load-carrying capability than solid rivets. A tight joint formed by the rivet body remains, the head of the mandrel remains encapsulated at the blind side, although variations of this are available, and the mandrel stem is ejected.
It required a separate GKN mandrel and the rivet body to be hand assembled prior to use for the building of the Siskin III aircraft.
This design is ideal for high vibration applications where the back surface is inaccessible. The letters and digits in a rivet's identification number that precede its dash numbers indicate the specification under which the rivet was manufactured and the head style. Many sheet-metal alloys are preferably not welded as deformation and modification of material properties can occur. In other words, pounding creates a new "head" on the other end by smashing the "tail" material flatter, resulting in a rivet that is roughly a dumbbell shape. A rivet compression tool does not require two people, and is generally the most foolproof way to install solid rivets.
The "holder up or holder on" would then hold a heavy rivet set or dolly or another (larger) pneumatic jack against the round head of the rivet, while the riveter (or sometimes two riveters) applied a pneumatic rivet hammer to the unformed head, making it mushroom tightly against the joint in its final domed shape. The type of equipment used to apply semi-tubular rivets range from prototyping tools (less than $50) to fully automated systems. Furthermore, because of the mandrel they are more prone to failure from corrosion and vibration. Drive screws, possibly another name for drive rivets, are commonly used to hold nameplates into blind holes. The design-type, material and any finish is usually expressed in plain language (often English). The result is that rivets in the same joint with loose fasteners carry more of the loada€”they are effectively more stiff. To distinguish between the two ends of the rivet, the original head is called the factory head and the deformed end is called the shop head or buck-tail. Some aluminum alloy rivets are too hard to buck and must be softened by solution treating (precipitation hardening) prior to being bucked. Typical installation tools (from lowest to highest price) are hand set, manual squeezer, pneumatic squeezer, kick press, impact riveter, and finally PLC-controlled robotics.
Other makings on the rivet head, such as small raised or depressed dimples or small raised bars indicate the rivet's alloy. The rivet can then fail before it can redistribute load to the other loose fit fasteners like bolts and screws.
The most common machine is the impact riveter and the most common use of semitubular rivets is in lighting, brakes, ladders, binders, HVAC duct work, mechanical products, and electronics. Steel rivets can be found in static structures such as bridges, cranes, and building frames.
In general, a joint composed of similar fasteners is the most efficient because all fasteners reach capacity simultaneously.
A wide variety of materials and platings are available, most common base metals are steel, brass, copper, stainless, aluminum and most common platings are zinc, nickel, brass, tin. An installed tubular rivet has a head on one side, with a rolled over and exposed shallow blind hole on the other.
Semi-tubular rivets are the fastest way to rivet in mass production, but require capital investment.
