Effects of temperature on the response of composite bolted joints
Y. Takao, Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan
This chapter considers the effects of temperature on a mechanical joint of composite materials under static loading. Following the presentation of the results of a literature survey, the effects of temperature on the mechanical response of mechanical pin and bolt joints are described including an experimental method specific to temperature effects, load-deformation curves and bearing strength. Damage (macroscopic surface damage and the evolution of microscopic damage) is explained in detail for both pin and bolt cases. The numerical methods and previous literature related to temperature effects are described and further ...
