Abstract : The volume describes the program, specimens used, and results to evaluate pinned mechanically fastened joints, single overlap, double overlap, and scarfed bonded joints under typical service conditions represented by the fatigue and environmental portions of the program. Results of all three phases of the program are summarized in this volume through the use of summary curves, tables, and charts. Appendix I contains the final report of Singer-General Precision, Inc. which describes the adhesive characterization program performed on the AF 126-2 and HT 424 adhesive systems. Appendix II contains drawings of all test specimens. (Author)
