In this paper, Single lap joint is prepared by three different joining methods namely adhesive bonding, riveted and bolted joints. The physical response of the single lap joints of Glass fibre reinforcement material subjected to tensile test was studied using finite element method. In adhesive bonding, finite element analysis was carried out using ANSYS 16.0 for different overlap thickness as 0.2, 0.4 and 0.6 mm. Similarly, analysis carried out in riveted joint and bolted joint by varying the number of rivet and bolt. Virtually, ultimate strength and mode of failure in single lap glass fibre rein forced polymer (GFRP) joints were predicted at design stage to save time, fabrication and testing for complete product realization.

Keywords: Adhesive joint, bolted joint, finite element Analysis, GFRP, Joint strength, Riveted joint
