Adhesively Bonded Composite Doubler Loaded by Remote In-Plane Loads


Closed-form solutions of an adhesively bonded composite doubler loaded by remote in-plane loads are presented.  The complete solution set is a superposition of solutions for in-plane bi-axial loads and in-plane shear loads.  The solution for the in-plane bi-axial loads follows the familiar Volkersen and Hart-Smith’s treatise.  The solution for the in-plane shear loads was first derived by Kim and Kedward in 2001.  However, their solution employed a double trigonometric series that could take tens of thousands of terms to converge to an acceptable solution which rendered this solution non-practical to apply.  This current study reformulates the solution with a different series that was applied by Timoshenko for solving bending of rectangular plates.  For this new solution usually less than 100 terms are sufficient to obtain accurate results.  The derived stress state is validated with a non-conventional finite element solution technique which requires only a moderately fine mesh but still retain the accuracy of a detailed three-dimensional model.
