A hybrid joint is a combination of mechanical fastening and adhesive bonding. Mechanical fastening in the joint is done by means of rivets. The work is aimed at analyzing single lap hybrid composite joints. In single lap hybrid joint, analyses are done by inserting a thin layer of composite between the plates. Analyses are done for different composite materials in ANSYS Workbench 16.2. The different composite materials used for both the joints are CFRP, GFRP, E- glass fibre and Aramid fibre. All the models have same cross-sectional area and are subjected to a tensile load within the elastic limit. The model with least deflection and least stress concentration is desirable. Results are compared and interpreted in terms of deflection and stresses.
