that, for sheet thiaklnosse of 0.064 and. 0.081 inch, the
use of 1/8-inch brasier-head rivets produces a tighter
joint in shear than does the use of 1/8-inch round-head
rivets. For a sheit thickness of 0.025 iaoh,"the round-
head rivets are tighter than the brasier-head rivets,
For sheet-thicknesses.of 0.032 and. 0.040 inch, the two
types of rivet are of about equal quality with regard to
tichtness..- o comparative tests.vere made with sheet
thicknesses less than 0.025 inch or greater than 0.081
inch, or with rivets of diameters other than 1/8 inch.
Hardnees tests of representative samples of each of
the two types of rivet showed thht they were of about
equal hardness, and therefore that the other material
properties for the two .types were probably also about equals
