Abstract:

This publication contains three papers heard by the Structures and Materials Panel Sub-Committee on Mechanically Fastened Joints in Composites. The papers survey the various parameters governing the behaviour of bolted joints, and give some experimental data representative of behaviour under load. It is concluded that poor static strength, rather than good fatigue strength, is a characteristic of this type of joint.
