Abstract : The report describes the results of three research areas: development of analysis tools for composite plate and shell structures; basic studies of interlaminar shear; and synthesis and design of adhesively bonded step joints. The university-industry-Air Force interaction and the educational accomplishments under this program are described. Finally, to indicate a significant impact of the present program, a brief description is given of another research program which deals with the analysis of laminated plates and shells of composite materials and is an extension of a preliminary study under the present program.
