Abstract

An analytical and experimental study has been completed to assess the effectiveness of a direct cold expansion technique on the fatigue strength of fastener holes. Such methods are used in the aircraft construction industry to make holes more resistant to failure but recent research findings have reported that sometimes the anticipated benefits of cold expansion are not always achieved. This research work has sought to clarify the situation. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
