Paper Title:
Fiber Reinforced Composite Structure with Bolted Joint – A Review
  Abstract

Fiber reinforced composite structures are widely used in the aerospace, aircraft, civil and automotive applications due to their high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios and these applications require joining composite either to composite or to metal. There are three main methods for joining composite structures namely, bonding, mechanically fastened or a combination of the two. Bolted joint are preferred in structures where the disassembly is required for the purpose of maintenance and repair. Due to the stress concentration around the holes, bolted joints often represents the weakest part in the structure, and therefore it is important to design them safely. A review on the study of bolted joints in fiber reinforced composite structure is presented. It was found that the behavior of bolted joints in composite structure is affected by many factors, such as geometry, joint material, clamping–load provided by the bolts, ply orientations, etc. Accordingly, various researches have been conducted on the analyses of stress distribution, failure prediction, and strength properties of bolted joint both experimentally and numerically. Accurate prediction of stresses in bolted joints is essential for reliable design of the whole structure; if it is not optimally designed, premature and unexpected failures may be occurred.
