Evaluating the strength of plates of composite laminates in the region of a bolted joint

  • 35 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The proposed efficient method of calculation of the SSS and the strength of CLM plates in the region of a loaded hole makes it possible, comparing with the FEM, to reduce the computing time, the amount of initial data, and the amount of memory that is necessary. The shown calculated and experimental data indicate that the proposed method can be used for calculation of the strength and type of failure on the stage of designing mechanical joints made of the CLM.
