This report provides a detailed set of data for mechanical joining and adhesive bonding of steel to aluminium for automotive applications. It includes an experimental study, technical process details, information on how a given process can be applied across a range of materials, mechanical properties and physical characteristics of the joints produced, and an economic study. The aim of the report is to provide a highly detailed set of data covering the major factors that a company needs to consider when selecting a joining technology. This will enable the reader to determine the most appropriate joining solution for a material combination within their own specific economic and performance related constraints. The report also includes a study on the development of a resistance spot welding solution for steel to aluminium joining.
