Abstract Adhesive joints exhibit several advantages over conventional joints based on mechanical fasteners such as more uniform stress distribution, enhanced fatigue performance, stiffer connection, lower weight, smooth surface countor. However, the influence of environmental effects related to temperature and moisture absorption on the mechanical performance of these types of composite joints are not yet fully understood. This work investigates the hygrothermal effects on fracture toughness of ...
