dc.description.abstract

Adhesives and adheslvely bonded structures are being considered as a viable alternative to conventional fastening methods. In order to gain wider acceptance, it is essential to address the issue of the mechanlcal characterizatlon of adhesive materials and its implementation in the design of bonded joints.

While measuring the in-situ properties of the adhesive ln a joint is a difficult task, characterizing its bulk properties is a relatively simpler undertaking. The objective of this study was to propose and verify an experimental procedure that would allow the analytical prediction of the viscoelastic behaviour of a bonded joint, using bulk adhesive properties. The Arcan joint geometry was chosen because of the simple state of stress within the adhesive.
