    Abstract

    At present, mechanical fastening is a common joining method for graphite/epoxy laminates, despite the considerable loss of laminate strength due to the fastener holes. To date, most research on graphite/epoxy laminates has involved the testing of laminates with unloaded holes; very little research has been done with loaded holes, especially on the stress analysis of such holes. The purpose of this paper is to present some analytical results for stresses near loaded holes in finitewidth laminates.
