Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...

Does anyone know where I can find a complete and updated litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws, bolts ... ?
(reference, dimensions , material ....)
Thank in advance

RE: Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...

See MIL-HNBK-5H Ch 8.1 for typical fastener types and strength data.

RE: Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...

The most current information is through the SAE website.
Most of the AN/MS/NAS standard Hardware is being shifted over to the new standards.  A good source would be a distributor of Hardware like the old Van Dusen catalogs.
   To buy specs check out organizations like "Document Engineering" in Van Nuys CA.  They sell the individual specs and the complete document sets for The major spec producers.  There is a lot of information out there but sometimes its hard to get up to date data.  These companies specialize in this stuff so they are usually up to speed.
   You might also try the EAA.  They have books and pubs available that covers a lot of this info for the most popular hardware.

Good luck!!

RE: Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...

Excuse me but what is SAE ?
What's the adress of the Web site ?
And could you be more precise about EAA ?

RE: Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...


SAE is no longer only associated with automobiles.  They publish many aerospace standards, typically for materials and fasteners.

EAA is the Experimental Aircraft Association.  Their website is http://www.eaa.org/ .

RE: Litterature about aeronautical rivets, screws ...

SAE has the answers, doles them out in teeny tiny info bits and charges too much for too little. My direct experience is that a confused fasteners standards situation is only being aggravated.
