I have made two composite plates ( MP1 and MP2) with a latch plate on top bolted together with 4 bolts as a shear joint connection (single assembly) in Inventor and imported to workbench. In order to create the GRP plates, surface was created for the plates solid model and the surfaces were used to create ply in ACP pre. One end the MP1 plate is fixed and the farthest end of MP2 is loaded. I'm interested in the failure modes of the GRP plates.
I would like to know the contacts (frictional/fricctionless/bonded) to be used between the plates and between plates and bolts.
