Abstract

This is a report of an experimental and theoretical study of 3 long butt joints fabricated with A-7 steel and connected with 7/8" A 141 rivets. The results of these tests are compared with previous tests of riveted and bolted connections. The data covers unbuttoning and slip characteristics of the connections and also the partition of load among rivet fasteners.
