High-Velocity Riveting (HVR) is a novel joining method that allows the joining of two sheets of metal through a metallurgical bond resulting from the high-speed impact with the rivet and the die. 3D finite element (FE) models were developed and used to help inform the die design and processing conditions. The model was able to simulate the joining process and inform the processing conditions. Additionally, outputs from the FE model are used as an input to a Molecular Dynamics (MD) model developed to investigate the atomistic mechanisms at nm to Ám length scale that may influence the metallurgical bonding, such as inter-diffusion of atoms and local recrystallization of Aluminum at the interface. This ICME framework is suited to predict and understand the link between processing parameters and the physics of the bonding at the interface between the joined materials.
