The concept is, by changing the fastener interface around the hole from the surrounding composite structure, to increase bearing load capability enabling optimization of the composite part load transfer condition and also enhance the ability of hole l<

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

The innovation lies by focusing on the actual attachment between components by implementing hybrid design features into composite components to enhance by design the tolerance chain and the bearing stress capability. •The strength around the apert
