Definitive surface integrity information identifying and ranking the importance of hole quality variables on the performance of tapered interference fit fasteners has been developed. This report summarizes the fatigue behavior of open hole specimens and low load transfer specimens containing a variety of metallurgical and geometric hole quality variables. Limited crack growth behavior is also reported.
