Abstract:

Fracture of advanced fiber composites has been reported. The experimental program has given direction to additional experimental and theoretical work. A synthesis program for designing low weight multifastener joints in composites is proposed, based on extensive analytical background. A number of failed joints have been thoroughly analyzed to evaluate the failure hypothesis used in the synthesis procedure. The report includes new solution methods for isotropic and anisotropic laminates using the boundary- integral method. The solution method offers significant savings of computer core and time for important problems.
