Abstract :

were determined. NVet installations In sheet thicker than 0.060 Inch

in shear vere: 3/16 Inch dlaæter, 1781 and lbs. respectively;

The higher performance characteristics of modern aircraft 
necessitates aerodynamically clean skin surfaces. In the past , 
countersunk rivet Installations in thin sheet thicknesses were made 
by dimpling, a method which produced uneven skin surfaces. In an 
attempt to produce smoother skin surfaces dimpled rivet installations 
are being replaced with countersunk instafr at ions. 
Since the thin skin thicknesses now being countersunk are less 
than the minimum allowable per present installation specifications , 
allowable rivet loads are not available for structural desigi. 
The object of this test is to determine the design allowable load 
Of AN 427 mmel rivets in machine countersunk titanium sheet. 
Desigl ultimate shear loads for AN 427 monel rivets in machine 
cmmtersunk titanium sheet, are as follmgs:
Test specimens were riveted lap joints, two rivets at each joint, 
using AN 427 MC monel rivets in machine countersunk, mill annealed, 
6 Al — LV titanium sheet. Specimen dimensions and rivet spacing 
are in Table I and Figure 1 respectively. Specimens having skin 
thichess legs than the .06C minimum, per Q 2001, were countersunk 
to the depth necessary to maintain the specified countersink diameter. 
This resulted in the countersink projecting through the top and into 
the bottom sheet, greatly reducing the bearing area.

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.
