Abstract:

This progress report summarizes the activities that have been performed under the sponsorship of the Federal Aviation Administration FAA under contract no. DEPT95-G-012-0001 from May 1, 1996 to June 1, 1997. This program is considered to be a part of a special joint project between the FAA and the Boeing Company on the design of composite bolted joints. The major effort of the joint project is to develop the most advanced computer code for the analysis and design of bolted composite joints for the Boeing Company and the FAA. The major focus of the FAA program is on net-tension failure of composites containing a circular cutout with or without a mechanically tightened bolt, while the Boeing program focuses on the bearing damage of bolted joints in both double and single lap joints. This report describes the activities under FAA funding. Both experimental and analytical work have been conducted.
