A Study on the Optimum Joining Condition in a Mechanical Press Joint

기계적 프레스 접합의 최적접합조건에 관한 연구

  • Published : 2000.03.01


Mechanical press joining has been used in sheet metal joining processes because of its simple process and possibility of joining dissimilar metals, such as steel and aluminum. The strength of mechanical press joining varies with joining conditions. The optimum joining conditions considering tensile-shear and peel-tension strength have to be established to assure the reliability in the joining strength. Therefore, optimization of joining conditions has been investigated for improving joining strength of sheet metal. It is possible to obtain optimum strength from improvement on the joining strength of peel-tension mechanical press joint under multiaxial stress states.
