Objectives: Actuality of the study is determined by a number of technical optimization problems due to singularity of designed objects in creation of large space structures. A characteristic feature of such problems is a combination of requirements for increasing of dimensions and providing sufficient stiffness and reliability in response to minimum mass optimization of load-bearing structure weight. This article discusses the combination of such details of construction as metal bushing and carbon tube by means of a heat-resistant polyurethane adhesive VK-20 modified by carborane compounds. Studies consist of calculation of stress-strain state of adhesive joint to determine the shear and breaking stresses in the contact area between the bonding parts. Assessment of failure-free operation of adhesive joint is also conducted during these studies. Methods: Computational studies of connections for manufacture of spatial composite structures of rocket and space techniques have been conducted by finite element analysis. Findings: Simulation of stress-strain state and assumptions adopted during simulation were described. Improvements: Calculations of stress-strain state have been conducted for model of spatial composite structure of space-rocket techniques.
