Effect of Geometry on Stress Distribution of Spew Fillet of Co-Cured Composite Single Lap Joint
Spew fillet is common in co-cured composite single lap joint. It plays an important role in the safety of the joint. In this paper, three spew fillets with typical geometries under static tensile load were investigated numerically using the commercial finite element code ANSYS. The computation results indicated: the fillet with a long curve edge had better performance than other fillets.
