This paper describes local strain measurements of electrical resistance spot welds for three sheet stack-ups of Dual Phase (DP600) and Mild steel under quasi-static tensile loading. The experiments were designed to measure local strain distributions at the vicinity of the spot welds using a modified tensile-shear specimen geometry that allows a strain measurement system to access such area. The electrode tip type used was B-nose, and surface indentation levels were 30% and 50% of the sheet thick...

Abstract Lightweight thermoplastic-based fiber–metal laminates were developed based on self-reinforced polypropylene and glass fiber-reinforced polypropylene composite materials and an aluminum alloy 2024-T3. The laminates were manufactured using a fast one-step cold press manufacturing procedure. The mechanical behavior of the laminates was then investigated under tensile and fatigue loading conditions. The tensile properties of the plain aluminum, the composite materials and the thermoplastic ...
