The behaviour of a typical finite riveted joint under simple tensile loading is experimentally investigated. Four types of specimens are tested to find out the effect of rivet size and configuration on joint strength. It is observed, that the rivet size and configuration do not have significant effect on joint strength, since the joint strength is mainly controlled by the bending stresses. It is also observed that the finite width of the hinge plate brings additional forces into joint region which causes lateral bending of the joint.
