A composite is commonly defined as a combination of two or more distinct materials, to create a new material with properties that cannot be achieved by any of the components acting alone. The growing use of composites for structural applications has made a thorough understanding of the behavior of composite joints in various applications. Joints are critical elements in composite due to their stress concentration. Composite joint is one of the most important part of structure. There are different types of joint, each of them has its own pros and cons and use in various applications and environments.
