Abstract

A semi-analytical solution method is developed for stress analysis of single-lap hybrid (bolted/bonded) joints of composite laminates under in-plane as well as lateral loading. The laminate and bolt displacements are based on the Mindlin and Timoshenko beam theories, respectively. For the adhesive, the displacement field is expressed in terms of those of laminates by using the shear-lag model. The derivation of the governing equations of equilibrium of the joint is based on the virtual work principle, where the kinematics of each laminate are approximated by local and global functions and the bolt kinematics is assumed in terms of cubic Hermitian polynomials. The capability of the present approach is justified by validation and demonstration problems, including the analysis of bolted and bonded joints and hybrid joints with and without considering a disbond between the adhesive and laminates.
