Not surprisingly over my career…I’ve seen it once and I continue to see it again and again and again…a failure to check a fastened joint for pull-through. What is seemingly a simple stress check is often overlooked. This tip provides a quick method to check for pull-through failure anytime...but hopefully you check during the preliminary phase of the design before a failure or a messy redesign is required. A check that readily ascertains whether a composite joint is thick enough, or possesses the minimum inter-laminar shear strength needed to prevent a pull-through failure is discussed in this article.
