What is it about?

We study the effect of joint geometry and clamping force on the different failure stages of bolted joints.

Why is it important?

The main parameters controlling the structural behavior of bolted joint in each stage were recognized.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. This article also lead to structural joints groups contacting me and ultimately to a greater involvement in structural joints research.
