This paper presents the results of an investigation into the failure of bolted joints in composite panels. The design of specific failure mode is a key element of this research and one that is a relatively specialist concept but important particularly in relation to rotor blade tip design, where a controlled failure is essential to protect the primary structure during blade strike. The results of a first set of analytical and experimental investigations are reported, covering optimisation of bolted composite joints and, in this case bolt group configurations, ensuring that the optimum balance of safety and material efficiency is achieved.

This article presents the results of an investigation into the failure of bolted joints in thin composite panels. The experimental investigations and comparisons of two different bolt group configurations (single row and staggered row) subjected to uniaxial loading are presented. Finite element analysis (FEA) is utilized to find the optimum bolt and edge distance arrangement. By understanding the link between modes of failure and bolt arrangement, failure modes can become part of the design specification or criteria. The article also gives some insight into load distribution and transfer between bolts and panels and their failure mechanism in composite panels. © 2014 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
