TL;DR: In this paper, a standard metal-to-metal adhesive-bonded lap joint is analyzed by a two-dimensional finite-element method and comparisons are made with previous analyses.
Abstract: Stresses in a standard metal-to-metal adhesive-bonded lap joint are analysed by a two-dimensional finite-element method and comparisons are made with previous analyses. Particular attention is paid to the stresses at the ends of the adhesive layer. Unlike previous work, which assumes the adhesive to have a square edge, the adhesive spew is treated as a triangular fillet. The highest stresses exist at the adherend corner within the spew. Linear elastic behaviour is assumed throughout.A rubber model is reported which confirms these results physically.Good agreement was also obtained between some practical results and the finite-element predictions.

TL;DR: In this paper, a non-linear finite element technique was used to predict the mode of failure and failure load of single lap joints made from three aluminium alloys and four epoxy adhesives.
Abstract: A non-linear finite element technique has been used to predict the mode of failure and failure load of single lap joints made from three aluminium alloys and four epoxy adhesives, and the results compared with those obtained from experiment and closed-form analyses. The finite element program used was able to account for the large displacement rotations that occur in a single lap joint under load, and allowed the effects of elasto-plasticity in both the adhesive and adherends to be modelled. A failure criterion based on the uniaxial tensile properties of the adhesive was used: for two untoughened adhesives a maximum stress criterion was found to be appropriate while for two toughened adhesives a maximum strain criterion was employed.
TL;DR: In this paper, the effect of the adhesive thickness on the bond strength of single-lap adhesive joints is still not perfectly understood, but more experimental tests are necessary to understand all the variables.
Abstract: The effect of the adhesive thickness on the bond strength of single-lap adhesive joints is still not perfectly understood. The classical elastic analyses predict that the strength increases with the adhesive thickness, whereas experimental results show the opposite. Various theories have been proposed to explain this discrepancy, but more experimental tests are necessary to understand all the variables. The objective of the present study was to assess the effect of the adhesive thickness on the strength of single-lap joints for different kinds of adhesives. Three different adhesives were selected and tested in bulk. The strain to failure in tension ranged from 1.3% for the most brittle adhesive to 44% for the most ductile adhesive. The adherend selected was a high-strength steel to keep the adherends in the elastic range and simplify the analysis. Three thicknesses were studied for each adhesive: 0.2, 0.5, and 1 mm. A statistical analysis of the experimental results shows that the lap shear strength incre...
