I was wondering if anyone knows of research that has been or is being done on bolt holes in composite materials. I am specifically interested in predicting the bearing/shear-out capability of a hole given only tensile properties of the composite panel and, of course, the relevant dimensions. In my specific application we are using panels fabricated from IM6/3501 graphite epoxy 32-ply quasi-isotropic laminate. Many thanks, Ken
