"The object of this thesis is to determine by analytical means and laboratory tests the holding force of various crimp methods of fastening sheet metals and special tubing. The study is conducted with heat treated Aluminum alloy 24S.T3.
The problem of joining relatively thin walled tubing of high strength material or the application of a plug to such a tube has been investigated by many manufacturers, but the literature in this field is limited and still there are many cases where a better method may prove very useful. At the suggestion of Dr. Aaron J. Miles, the author decided to investigate the possibilities of using a crimp for closing or rather plugging tubes"--Introduction, page 1.
