Self-piercing riveting (SPR) has drawn more attention in recent years because it can join some advanced materials that are hard to weld, such as aluminum alloy sheets. In this paper, the free torsional vibration characteristics of single lap-jointed encastre SPR beam are investigated in detail. The focus of the analysis is to reveal the influence on the torsional natural frequencies and mode shapes of the single lap-jointed encastre SPR beam of different characteristics of sheets to be jointed. Numerical examples show that the torsional natural frequencies increase significantly as the Young’s modulus of the sheets increase, but almost no change corresponding to the change in Poisson’s ratio of the sheets to be joint. The mode shapes show that there are different deformations in the jointed section of SPR beam compared with the reference encastre beam without joint. These different deformations may cause different natural frequency values and different stress distributions.
