A New Concept of a Temporary Fastener for Composite Structures 2008-01-2290
A new type of temporary fastener fulfills the requirement of reduced specific loads applied to composite structures. With that the danger of delamination especially at sloped surfaces is under control and limited. It is also insensitive to contamination and provides reduced maintenance of the clamping means. For disassembly a controlled screwing process guaranties that structure and panel will not be damaged.
