Abstract: Laminated composites are rapidly finding uses in different engineering applications like Aviation, Sports equipment, Marine technology, Aerospace and Electronics. This is due to their versatile engineering properties. Bolting and Bonding are the widely used joining techniques in composites. However bonding has added advantages over bolting in terms of weight reduction and strength .This paper explores the fatigue strength of single lap epoxy bonded joint between composite laminates. The experimental results are compared with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) results.
