​​To help reduce emissions and fuel consumption the automotive industry relies heavily upon constructing lightweight aluminium vehicle body structures using Self-Piercing Rivets (SPR). All major car manufacturing companies (Jaguar, Audi, Bentley etc) now use SPR as fasteners in their aluminium cars. It is essential that a minimum number of SPR are used to achieve cost viability as each SPR has its own dedicated robot. Engineering with SPR involves a multi-disciplinary approach with engineers that include, CAD, Stress, Weight, Cost and Testing.

This SPR course provides a detailed presentation with notes and formulas relating to the practical design and strength analysis of Lap and T-Peel joints formed with SPR and SPR combined with adhesive bond. Strength and Failure mode modelling allows for product designs that maximise the structural reliability and minimises the weight and associated cost.

The student needs no prior knowledge of SPRs as the course pragmatically introduces all the necessary aspects of SPR joint design and stress analysis.
