Abstract Lug joints are special type of pin joints, which are widely used for joining various parts of an aircraft, especially for joining wings to fuselage. During service, the lug type joints are subjected to fatigue loading and complete load transfer takes place through the pin. At the pin and lug interface, the combination of high stress concentration and fretting could potentially lead to crack initiation and then crack propagation under cyclic loading. Because of this reason the wing… Expand
