Abstract : In the analysis and design of bonded and bolted composite joints, certain input data are required that are not readily available. Many engineering hours at the depots are expended in obtaining the required information. Even when the data are obtained, the accuracy of it is sometimes questionable. The availability of this information in a computerized database would greatly facilitate composite joint analysis and design. The work described in this report involved an extensive search of the technical literature for adhesive and composite material property data as well as bonded and bolted joint properties. The data collected in the literature search were tabulated into a user friendly format for ready retrieval. The data in this tabulation include, in addition to material properties, discussions of fastener and joint design parameters, loading and environmental effects and test methods.
