In this paper, a dent occurred on a fuselage skin is considered, for which, a repair joint is designed using rivets and is analyzed for static and fatigue loads. Two dimensional model of a joint is taken and the load transfer through the joint is calculated using Patran and Nastran. Then, life of the joint is evaluated by carrying out the fatigue analysis in Ansys. The proposed joint is proved to be satisfactory as far as standards are concerned.
