The presented paper introduces the new software complex aimed at simulation of the riveting process as applied to aircraft parts. The software complex implements the novel mathematical model based on minimization of the potential energy. The paper gives the detailed description of the mathematical model and particularizes the main features of the software. The physical and numerical tests aimed at validation of the software are also described in the paper.
