A SURVEY OF FASTENING TECHNIQUES FOR SHIPBUILDING

This report is aimed at defining fastening processes and techniques that are not widely used in ship construction today in terms of their applicability and potential for improving cost, construction, reliability, and maintenance of hull structures and attachments. The study includes similar and dissimilar metal-to-metal and metal-to-nonmetal joints, a generic fastener matrix of typical fasteners, fastener installation equipment and processes, proposed applications of explosion-bonded materials, and cost comparisons of various fabrication techniques. Fusion welding, diffusion bonding, friction welding, and adhesive bonding are discussed. Several fastener standards and vendor proprietary fasteners are included as figures. Extractions from Boeing Design Manual sections on mechanical fastening and adhesive bonding are included as reference attachments. Fastening systems and techniques that merit further study or verification are identified.
