Abstract

This study presents a two-dimensional semi-analytical solution method for the stress analysis of bolted composite lap joints under general in-plane loading. It is based on a combined complex potential and variational formulation. The method is capable of modeling finite geometries, bolt stiffness, bolt-hole clearance, variable plate thickness, and metallic inserts without any symmetry requirements. It accounts for the contact phenomenon and the interaction among the bolts explicitly under bearing and by-pass loading. It is computationally not demanding; thus, suitable for parametric studies and design optimization.
