    rivet joint designs......


    Im in desperate need of a good link where i can read up about rivet joint designs with gusset plates etc. (specifically i need to know suitbale designs for a bridge structure made from aluminium angle and strip) however general information would be just as good. Thanks in advance for the help guys..........this would be very much appreciated. :smile:

    Here is a report on the seismic behavior of riveted gusset design.


    I may not be what you're looking for, but it does have references.

    Usually, there are specific manuals from engineering or construction societies/institutes which would provide standard designs.

    AISC = American Institute of Steel Construction
