An analysis was performed to predict the failure load of unidirectional and woven pinned loaded composite joints using the characteristic curve model. The characteristic dimensions used to determine the characteristic curve were evaluated from stress functions without experimental tests. A parametric study was carried out for different coefficient of friction ranging between 0 and 0.15 to evaluate the effect of friction on joints failure using Tsai-Wu failure criterion along the characteristic curve. A comparison of analytical results with the available experimental data showed that the friction coefficient of 0.05 generally gave the best prediction for the joint configurations evaluated.
