Shear tests on DuPont explosive rivets with the countersunk head milled flush after expansion

One of 116 reports in the series: NACA Restricted Bulletins available on this site.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Report discusses the results of shear testing in which the heads of Du Pont explosive countersunk rivets were allowed to protrude above the skin surface before expansion and the protruding portions were removed after expansion. As the height of the rivet head above the skin increases, the tightness of the rivet was found to increase. The report concludes that it may be desirable to investigating filling an entire shank with an explosive charge in order to permit greater tolerances in the drilled hole diameter and still have consistently tight rivets.
