Because there is effectively a head on each end of an installed rivet, it can support tension loads (loads parallel to the axis of the shaft); however, it is much more capable of supporting shear loads (loads perpendicular to the axis of the shaft). Bolts and screws are better suited for tension applications.
Fastenings used in traditional wooden boat building, such as copper nails and clinch bolts, work on the same principle as the rivet but were in use long before the term rivet was introduced and, where they are remembered, are usually classified among nails and bolts respectively.
The common types of rivets include: solid rivet, whole tubular rivet, semi-tubular rivet, shoulder or step rivet, male female or mate rivet, split rivet, blind rivet, drive rivet, flush rivet, self-pierce rivet, section lock rivet, drive rivet, compression or speed rivet
