    The increasing demands for weight savings in automotive, aerospace and rail industry have stimulated the development and application of new materials, e.g. Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS), aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, titanium alloys and carbon fiber reinforced polymers [1]. The new materials imply severe challenges to assembly operations. Fusion welding may be difficult or impossible when joining dissimilar material combinations and in several cases even when joining to themselves. This calls for alternative joining methods such as deformation assisted joining. Comprehensive reviews on these joining methods including mechanical joining and solid-phase welding are given by Refs. [2,3]. Mechanical joining may be either form-fit joints or force-fit joints [3], the latter also named interference-fit joints [4] (Fig. 4.1).
