This paper conducts correctly the mechanical analysis of joints by clinching for various values of module and process parameter. The force of tensile and shearing of the joint by clinching in AL5052 sheets were analyzed; the theoretical calculation formulas of the shearing and tensile force were deduced based on plastic forming principle. Then the clinching process was carried out by FEM simulation and experiment; the joint strength was obtained by shearing and tensile test. The results of
