Interference-fit fasteners are used in large numbers throughout aircraft structures. Conventional installation methods are driving fasteners into aperture using pneumatic or hydraulic tooling, installation damage always occurs using these methods. This paper introduces a new method of driving interference-fit fastener using stress wave, reports on a comparison of driving quality between stress wave driving and hydraulic force driving. The experiments completed by authors indicate that...[Show more]
