Riveted Double Lap Joint, Al-Glass Fiber Sandwich Plate


This work deals with Find the tensile strength of Al-Glass Fiber Sandwich Plate having double lap rivet joint with different fiber orientation. The commercial finite element analysis (FEA) software, ANSYS has been used to create and analyze the models. The laminates (adherend) were made of glass/epoxy composite with different fibre orientation and the adhesive used was epoxy-based standard resin. The width of all the members was 50 mm. The thickness of adherents was taken to be 2 mm, and the thickness of adhesive layer was 0.2 mm. A 4 aluminium rivets was used for mechanical fastening from design calculations. The tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can take before failure. During the test a uniaxial load is applied through both the ends of the specimen. The dimension of specimen is (200x50x5)mm. Typical points of interest when testing a material include: ultimate tensile strength (UTS) or peak stress; offset yield strength (OYS) which represents a point just beyond the onset of permanent deformation; and the rupture (R) or fracture point where the specimen separates into pieces. The tensile test is performed in the universal testing machine (UTM) Instron 1195 and results are analyzed to calculate the tensile strength of composite plate having double lap riveted joint.
