The paper conducted bearing tests on composite pinned joints with four different stacking sequences. The bearing strength and bearing chord stiffness were obtained. The influence of stacking sequences on failure modes, bearing strength and bearing chord stiffness was discussed. Based on continuum damage mechanics, a three-dimensional finite element model of composite pinned joint under bearing load was built, where the maximum strain criterion was employed for initiation and bi-liner damage constitutive relation for revolution of fiber damage, while the physical-based Puck criterion was used for matrix damage initiation, and matrix damage revolution depended on the effective strain on the fracture plane. The failure mode, bearing strength and bearing chord stiffness of composite pinned joint were discussed with this model under which the non-linear shear behavior and in-situ strength effects were considered. Good agreements between test results and numerical simulations validates the accuracy and applicability of the finite element model.
