Abstract

In this study, analytical models considering different material and geometry for ‎both single and double-lap bolted joints were reviewed for better understand how to ‎select the proper model for a particular application. The survey indicades that the ‎analytic models selected for the adhesively single or double bolted lap joints, as well ‎as T, scarf, and stepped joints, with linear material properties are mostly two ‎dimensional and the studies on stress distribution and/or failure of the joint are ‎performed either experimentally, analytically or by finite element method. The results ‎seem to be generally accurate and adequate. Additionally, it was shown that any ‎increase in the bolt-hole clearance leads to an increase in bolt rotation, as well as a ‎decrease in bolt-hole contact area, and hence, a reduction in joint stiffness. Moreover, ‎studies on hybrid joints have revealed that the proper choice of adhesive material in ‎conjunction with bolts or rivets in a joint, allows for significant increase in the static ‎and fatigue strength compared to similar pure bonded joints. Additionally, the results ‎on hybrid scarf joints showed that it is vital to place fasteners closer to the ends of the ‎overlap to suppress the peak peeling stresses and hence, delay the effects of early ‎crack initiation in the adhesive layer...
