Study Of Failure Loads Of Carbon Epoxy Composite Plates With Single Pin Holes

K Sridevi


This paper deals with the study of failure loads of carbon epoxy composite plates with a circular hole subjected to a traction force by a rigid pin using mathematical model. These are investigated for two variables, the ratio of distance from the free edge of the plate (E) to the diameter of the hole (D) and the ratio of width of the plate (W) to the diameter of the hole (D). The effect of joint geometry on the failure loads has been studied and a comparison of experimental, numerical and mathematical models is made. The results obtained by mathematical model are found to be close to the experimental results.
