Bolted Joint Textbook

Bolted Joint Textbook

Bolted Joint Textbook

I'm thinking about buying a textbook that specialized on the topic of bolted joints.  Does anyone have suggestions?


RE: Bolted Joint Textbook

mathlete7 -

bolted joints for ? application ?

aircraft? metal or composite materials?


RE: Bolted Joint Textbook

Bolted joints for aerospace.  Metallics or composites (but preferably both in one textbook if such a textbook exists).


RE: Bolted Joint Textbook

For typical aerospace structure joints:

for metallic structure, see
Bruhn, Analysis and Design of Flight Vehicle Structures
Peery, Aircraft Structures (1st edition is better)
Niu, Airframe Stress Analysis

for composite structures, see
ASM Handbook, Volume 21 Composites (www.asminternational.org)
Niu, Composite Aircraft Structures

I'm not aware of a specific bolted joint text, and most composite structure joint analysis method are company proprietary.
