Abstract Because of maintenance issues, the concept of safe life is an important philosophy for designing adhesive joints where the service load is cyclic. However, this philosophy needs a tool to be able to estimate the total fatigue life. The objective of this study is to develop a numerical tool to predict the fatigue life of adhesive joints for pure mode II loading conditions. To achieve this, a previously published mode I data degradation approach was extended for pure mode II. Fatigue test...

This paper addresses numerical and experimental examination of the role of zigzag interface shapes on the load bearing capacity and fatigue life of adhesively bonded single lap joints. Aluminum adherends with non-flat zigzag interfaces were tested under both quasi-static and fatigue loading conditions. The quasi-static test results revealed that the non-flat adhesive joints have higher load bearing capacity compared to the conventional flat single lap joints. Comparative fatigue tests with diffe...

Abstract This paper describes a method of measuring the toughness of adhesive joints in various mixed mode combinations from mode I (opening) to mode II (shear) relying exclusively on the load-displacement curve obtained from an universal testing machine and the displacement from two linear variable differential transformers (LVDT) connected to the specimen beams. The novelty of the method reported here is that it does not use a visual crack length measurement, instead employing a method that de...

ABSTRACTAdhesively bonded joints can support a longer fatigue life if compared to conventional joining techniques, provided that a set of requirements is fulfilled. One of the most important requirements is the mechanical preparation of the bonded joint surface, which improves the joint interface adhesion. The aim of this work is to investigate the influence of surface roughness of mild steel substrates on fatigue behavior in adhesive bonded plates. To accomplish this objective, three different ...

ABSTRACTSteel is the most important construction material for the mass production of engineered structures, especially in the transport industry. On the other hand, adhesive joints are typically used to join load-bearing components. Therefore, this work intends to investigate the stress ratio effects on the fatigue behaviour of adhesively bonded steel lap joints. S–N diagrams of fatigue tests, under constant amplitude loading, were obtained for stress ratios ranging between 0.05 and 0.7. It was ...

ABSTRACTEnvironmental factors, such as temperature and moisture, are known to have a degrading effect on the mechanical properties and performance of adhesive joints, which may be perceived as a non-problem because various works have shown that the static response of an adhesive is normally unaffected by slight moisture and temperature variations that occur in real-world applications. While this may be true, performance under purely static conditions is rarely found in commercial uses and most a...

Fracture mechanics characterization tests for adhesive joints are analyzed and reviewed in order to understand their advantages and disadvantages. Data reduction techniques for analytical methods are summarized to understand the improvements implemented in each test. Numerical approaches are also used complementing tests information. Both linear and non-linear methods to obtain the fracture energy release rate are presented. Pure mode I and mode II tests are described. Simple mixed-mode tests, v...

Abstract A new semi-empirical law for mode II delamination growth in moderately tough fibre reinforced epoxies at various stress ratios is introduced and validated. The new semi-empirical law is valid for positive stress ratios. The quality of the data fit obtained using the new semi-empirical equation is comparable to that achieved using alternative models from the literature, but the model presented here requires only two material parameters to represent the fatigue behaviour for the whole pos...

Use of the strain energy release rate for characterizing delamination growth in composite and bonded structures is now commonplace. Analogous to the use of the stress intensity factor range for fatigue crack growth in metals, the strain energy release rate range, defined as the arithmetic difference between maximum and minimum values, is often used to characterize fatigue delamination growth behaviour. The basis for similitude for these two parameters, however, is different and can lead to misin...

Modern products and structures require efficient material joining processes for their construction, able to combine similar or dissimilar materials, which almost always includes high-performance polymers. To design such joints, it is necessary to first understand the techniques currently used in this technological field and how they can be improved using advanced technological joining processes. In this manuscript, a review of several polymer-joining techniques is made, highlighting the recent t...

Abstract The fatigue life prediction of adhesive joints still remains a challenging issue. Given the increasing need for safer and more efficient industrial bonded structures, the development of simple fatigue design methodologies is of primordial relevance. In this work, a model based on the S–N approach for the estimation of the fatigue life of single lap adhesive joints with different geometries is proposed. Steel substrates and an epoxy adhesive were considered to manufacture joints with dif...
