Fastening of Light Weight Components with Elements Made of Aluminum 2000-01-1118

Weigth saving is more and more recommended due to future demands for low energy consumption. Especially the automotive industry continues to search as diligently as ever for ways to build lighter vehicles. Therefore, the use of light weight metals, preferably aluminum and magnesium is on the rise.
This contribution shows effective possibilities to fasten magnesium components, which require special fastening elements, if high stressed and reliable mechanical connections are necessary.
Topics are fundamental mechanics of magnesium fastening as well as examples for applications with screws, rivet nut and self piercing rivet.
