Abstract : The problems arising with the strength of single shear fastened joints are considerably greater than those of double shear joints. The additional (or secondary) bending moment loads not only the cover plates, but also causes considerable bending in the fasteners. If one of the cover plates is of composite material its brittleness and relatively low bearing strength lead to new problems. Experimental data were produced with a 100% load transfer specimen using a CFRP to metal joint. Taking the specimen configuration as a basis, the interaction of bolt bending and local load introduction into the two plates is shown in form of diagrams based on theoretical investigations. (SDW)
