Since many modules of a ship cannot be practically reduced to a single structure, joining technologies are employed to join various substructures and transfer loads between the different components. These joining methods include welding, mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding, overlamination, and hybrid joining. In the current study, a comprehensive review has been conducted on the mechanical performance of the common joining techniques in the marine industry.
