The co-cured joint has been widely used in joining process of composite structures due to its simple and easy manufacturing process. In this paper, the effect of stacking sequence of the carbon epoxy prepreg, bonding length and thickness of the aluminum plate on the static tensile load capability of the co-cured aluminum-composite double lap joint were experimentally investigated. From experimental results, the optimum EA ratios with respect to stacking sequence and bonding length of the co-cured joint were obtained, which may be useful for the joining of hybrid structures.
