Experimental work on tensile behaviour and failure mechanism of composite double lap bolted joint has been carried out. Chopped strand mat (CSM) coir, glass and coir-glass/epoxy composite plates were fabricated by hand lay-up method. The bolted joint specimens were of 155 mm length and 48 mm width. Steel bolts of 4 mm and 8 mm diameters were used. Effect of material type, number of layers and width to diameter ration (w/d) on tensile load, bearing strength and failure behaviour were examined. Results show that, the maximum load obtained from the glass/epoxy, coir/epoxy and coir-glass/epoxy specimens increased with the increase in the number of layers and (w/d) ratio. Maximum load obtained from the six layers glass/epoxy with w/d ratio of 12 is found higher respectively 15.2% and 50.14% than that obtained from hybrid coir-glass and coir/epoxy composite specimens. The percentages of difference were 14.2% and 42.97% for the specimens with w/d ratio of 6. It has been found that the maximum strength of the six layers glass/ epoxy specimens was found higher in the range between 17.5% to 18.46 % and 51.67% to 57.74 % than the hybrid coir-glass and coir/epoxy specimens respectively. Net tension failure and cleavage failure modes were observed for the two and four layers coir/ epoxy specimens with w/d ratios of 6 and 12. Bearing failure mode was observed for the six layers coir, glass and hybrid coir-glass/epoxy specimens.
