This chapter describes the corrosion mechanisms that are encountered when a self-piercing riveted assembly is subjected to a corrosive environment. The chapter begins with a short introduction and a description of the fundamental theory of the likely corrosion mechanisms for self-piercing riveted joints. This is followed by a description of relevant methods of studying the corrosion behaviour and the results of a study of the corrosion of self-piercing riveted joints between interstitial-free steel and aluminium 5182 as conducted by the author. The chapter ends with a description of the means that are used to minimise or eliminate the corrosion of self-piercing riveted joints.
