The paper presents a novel method to determine the adhesion strength of a polymer joint. The experimental arrangement provides a uniform transverse tensile stress at the interface, which does not have concentrations or singularities at the edges. The stress state at the interface is purely...
Experimental results for 90° peel tests are presented for alternative titanium surface treatments. Based upon these results, sodium hydroxide anodisation (SHA) and surface cleaning by Excimer laser were selected for further study. The durability of a titanium/glass fibre composite lap joint in a...
The paper aims at contributing to a better appraisal of the wedge-opened double cantilever beam method for testing the debonding toughness of adhesively bonded plates. The test specimens consisted of two plates of either hot-dip galvanized low carbon steel or alloy Al-6082-T6 bonded with an...
Modified and unmodified starch extracted from root crops, cereals and a legume have been assessed as bases for adhesives for paper–paper, paper–cardboard, paper–metal and paper–glass substrates. Adhesives based on unmodified starch from all the crops investigated produced low or high tack...
The viability of using the thick-adherend shear test (TAST) specimen to find the dynamic shear modulus of structural adhesives has been studied. Two different modes of vibratory deformation have been considered. In both cases, it has been shown that, in practical situations, simple vibratory...
The main aims of this work were to investigate the effect of temperature on fatigue crack propagation (FCP) in bonded joints and to compare this with fracture under quasi-static loading and fatigue failure in uncracked lap joints. The fatigue tests were conducted on epoxy bonded carbon fibre...
Mixed Mode I/II fracture experiments are conducted to determine the fracture toughness of a commercial elastomer methacrilate adhesive (Loctite Multibond 330) bonded joints. A compact tension-shear specimen geometry is adopted and the stress intensity factor (SIF) calibration is obtained by the...
AA6060-T6 aluminium extrusions have been subjected to various surface treatments before bonding with an epoxy based adhesive and subsequent exposure to chloride and humid atmosphere (82% RH, 40°C) for 50 days. Single lap joints given an alkaline etch pre-treatment before bonding suffered a 7%...
