In this study, stress-displacement analytic solutions are obtained by a shear lag modeling method constructed for the spliced joint area with a splicing gap in the fiber metal laminate (FML). This gap can be empty or be filled with an adhesive material of elastic modulus $E_a$. Two splicing types are considered for spliced shear models, one for spliced in the center metal layer, the other for spliced in the outer metal layer. It is shown that from the viewpoint of the load transfer efficiency and the avoidability of disbond generation due to the shear and axial stresses at the interface between metal layer and composite layer of the gap-front in the spliced area, the center spliced type (k=2) is much preferable to the outer spliced type (k=1).
