Abstract The suitability of mechanical clinching (press joining) to join fiber-reinforced plastics with aluminum sheets was investigated. To this end, different types of tools were tested, including split, grooved, flat dies, as well as rectangular ones. The influence of sheet thickness (thin sheets of 2 and 3 mm in thickness) and alloy composition (AA6082-T6 and AA5086) on joinability and mechanical behavior of the joints was analyzed. Single lap shear tests were conducted to characterize the… CONTINUE READING
