The objective of this dissertation is to Stress analysis and prediction of fatigue life to crack initiation in an in a transport aircraft fuselage. Typical splice joint panel consisting of skin plates, doubler plate is considered for the study. Aluminium alloy 2024-T351 material is considered for all the structural elements of the panel. A two dimensional finite element-analysis will be carried out on the splice joint panel. A panel consisting of a splice joint of a fuselage is considered for
