Reliable data on joint efficiencies of simple mechanical and adhesive joint using glass-epoxy composite as adherends is presented in this paper. In mechanical joints, bolted lap joints are considered, whereas in adhesive joints scarf joints are considered. The effect of various parameters on joint efficiencies of the said joints is studied. In mechanical joints maximum efficiency of 94% was obtained for 0 + or - 60 deg adherend, whereas for bonded scarf joints maximum efficiency of 74% was obtained for the same adherend.
