Subject: Composite Bolt Holes

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.
