Fastener spacing for sheet metal assembly

Question asked by Olatunde Ajayi on Dec 13, 2018

What is a good rule of thumb for the maximum distance between fasteners when securing sheet metal parts together. I want to design HVAC shells and thinking about optimizing the assembling process i would like to space out the fasteners as much as possible without making the parts loose. I would appreciate if anyone has any thoughts or books that could help me determine this.
