    Abstract

    Several different composite bolted joint analysis programs are now available to composite structures designers. All of the programs vary widely in the amount of input required, output received, and required user knowledge of composite materials. Six different bolted joint analysis programs will be examined. The various programs are (1) A4EJ, (2) BJSFM, (3) SASCJ, (4) SAMCJ, (5) SCAN, and (6) JOINT. Other analysis programs exist, but they apply many constraints on the problem definition and depend heavily on empirical test results. The relative merits of each program as well as their disadvantages will be discussed. The most appropriate applications of each of the programs will be presented, and some numerical comparisons of the results will be made. Each of the programs has a useful place in the design and analysis arena. An examination of the programs will be made to help users determine which program will best suit their needs.
