Introduction to Bolted Joints in Composite Materials

July 31, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

The majority of parts composed of composite materials are joined with other parts before becoming the final product. In addition to adhesive bonding, bolted joints are a common method of joining composites. They can be strong, and reliable, while allowing for disassembly if required.

This AIM Event webinar will provide an introduction to bolted joints in composite materials, covering advantages and disadvantages, the working principles of joints, failure modes, fastener types, and design considerations. A subsequent webinar will go into more detail on implementation of bolted joints.

This webinar complements two previous events on bonded joints that can be found at https://compositeskn.org/KPC/A354 and https://compositeskn.org/KPC/A355
