Title (EN) METHOD FOR ASSEMBLING AT LEAST TWO COMPONENT METAL ELEMENTS FOR PRODUCING A STRUCTURE
(FR) PROCEDE D'ASSEMBLAGE D'AU MOINS DEUX ELEMENTS CONSTITUTIFS EN METAL EN VUE DE CREER UNE STRUCTURE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention concerns a method for assembling at least two simple sheet metal elements (1, 2, 3,; 11, 12, 21, 21', 22, 22') for producing a structural part with open section, preferably U-shaped, or closed section, at least one of the metal elements having a high or very high yield strength and low deformability. The invention is characterised in that the metal elements are formed by at least a folding process; the metal elements are arranged relative to each other along a junction section; the metal elements are assembled by a crimped lap-joint (4) along the junction section of said elements.
(FR) Procédé d'assemblage d'au moins deux éléments métalliques simples en feuille (1, 2, 3; 11, 12; 21, 21', 22, 22'), en vue de créer une pièce de structure de section ouverte, de préférence en forme de 'U', ou fermée, au moins un desdits éléments métalliques présentant une haute ou très haute limite d'élasticité et une faible capacité de déformation, caractérisé en ce que: les éléments métalliques sont mis en forme par au moins un procédé de pliage; les éléments métalliques sont disposés l'un par rapport à l'autre suivant une section de jonction; les éléments métalliques sont assemblés par sertissage par ourlet (4) le long de la section de jonction desdits éléments.
