The project aims at achieving the Failure Analysis mixed riveted joints of hybrid laminates Glare with plates of aeronautical monolithic alloy 2024- T3 (Glare / alloy - Al) subjected to mechanical fatigue loading after the application, and combined, hygrothermal ageing (EH) and thermal cycles of large amplitude (CT), in both their chronological sequences, namely EH+CT and CT+EH. The characterizations of these laminates involving destructive and non- destructive testing, tests of Mechanical Fatigue and Inspection by Radiographic X-rays, respectively, for subsequent morphological analysis of faults through Optical Microscopy Reflection, Stereoscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy. The results are compared to those obtained for the same together Glare / Al - alloy, but as they were in the forms of, respectively, as - manufactured (according to the final report for Proc. FAPESP 2005/54899-8 IC) just hygrothermical ageing (Proc. IC FAPESP 2010/09823-1), and only subject to thermal cycles of large amplitude (IC Proc. FAPESP 2010/09822-5). The survey results will help us understand the macro -, meso - and micro - mechanisms of both processes of initiation and subcritical propagation of fatigue cracks in these aeronautical riveted joints when exposed to extremely harsh environments potentially found in actual service conditions.
