Question: p113 the double riveted butt joint shown in fig p113...

Question details

P.11.3. The double riveted butt joint shown in Fig. P.11.3 connects two plates, which are each 2.5 mm thick, the rivets have a diameter of 3 mm. If the failure strength of the rivets in shear is 370 N/mm2 and the ultimate tensile strength of the plate is 465 N/mm2, determine the necessary rivet pitch if the joint is to be designed so that failure due to shear in the rivets and failure due to tension in the plate occur simultane- ously. Calculate also the joint efficiency. pi to be designed so2.5mm 3mm diameter FIGURE P.11.3
