Computational and experimental study of composite scarf bonded joints

Y.W. Kwon     Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA, USA

Abstract

The scarf joint is commonly used to construct a large-size composite structure piece by piece or to repair a damaged composite structure. Because the interface of the scarf joint does not have any continuous reinforcement from one part to the next, it is generally the weakest link of a polymer composite structure. This chapter discusses the strength of the scarf joint of a polymer composite structure. Both computational and experimental studies are presented. For each study, the general interface strength is first discussed and then the scarf joint is presented. The numerical study focuses on proper modeling ...
