Title: Fatigue Phenomenon in Riveted Joints: Experimental Studies
Author(s): Daniela BartiÅŸ   Roxana Nedelcu            

Abstract: This work proposes to describe the process of the realization of a device which allows the execution of the fatigue tests on several proof samples, made of assembled elements by rivets of various types and various dimensions. The device for the fatigue tests was carried out in the laboratory of resistance of the pulpit of mechanics of the Military Technical Academy.

Keywords: fatigue tests, crack, riveted joint, damage.
