Abstract Adhesive bonding technologies exhibit several advantages over conventional mechanical fasteners which include lower weight, reduced stress concentration in the adherents and excellent fatigue properties allowing the design of smooth surface contour and damage tolerant aerostructures. The overall structural performance of the composite joint depends on several factors related to the manufacturing process, such as surface preparation procedure, adhesive type, aging effects, and deficiency of inspection procedures. For this reason, there is a clear need to understand better how the joints behavior can be affected by them and the causes of their failure in order to improve the design and performance. In this context, this work presents the application of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) technique to perform the fractographic analysis in two different types of joints namely co-bonded (CB) and secondary bonding (SB) that were submitted to a interlaminar fracture toughness tests under Mode II loading at Room Temperature Ambient (RTA) and Environmental Temperature Wet (ETW) conditions. The fracture surface of each sample submitted Mode II was prepared and analyzed regarding its failure aspects, enabling their association with the mechanical behavior of the samples during the fracture toughness tests and the values obtained. A detailed study on the fracture aspects of the composite joints was carried out correlating the fracture aspects with the mechanical behavior, type of processing and environmental conditioning in which each type of joint was tested, thus validating the use of these joints for operating conditions similar to those experienced in-service concerning aeronautical applications.

Abstract To investigate the degradation mechanism of adhesively bonded CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics)-aluminum alloy joints applied to high speed EMUs (electric multiple units) after experiencing continuous high temperature environment, bulk specimens, CFRP plates and adhesive joints, including thick-adherend shear joints (TSJs), scarf joints (SJs) with scarf angle 45° (SJ45°) and butt joints (BJs) were exposed at 80 °C for 30 days and then tested every 10 days. Chemical analysis, such ...

Abstract To improve the delamination resistance of the carbon fiber/epoxy composite (CF/E), the surface of the woven carbon fabric reinforcement was modified by in situ formed carbon fiber forest (CFF), which acts as novel interleaf in the laminates. The CFF was mechanically fabricated through a simple surface brushing and abrading of carbon fabrics. With the modification of CFF, the mode I interlaminar fracture toughness of CF/E composite laminates could be remarkably enhanced by ∼83% with mode...

Abstract Continuing interest and more developments in recent years indicated that it would be useful to update Banea and da Silva paper entitled “Adhesively bonded joints in composite materials: an overview”. This paper presents an updated review of adhesively bonded joints in composite materials, which covers articles published from 2009 to 2016. The main parameters that affect the performance of bonded joints such as surface treatment, joint configuration, geometric and material parameters, fa...

With recent advances in computational resources and the development of arbitrary cracking methods, such as the Augmented Finite Element Method (A-FEM), more complex simulations can now be represented featuring multiple interacting cracks. It has been established that Mode I crack propagation in particle-toughened interlayers within some toughened Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) laminates involves a discontinuous process zone, rather than a distinct crack tip. This results from multiple cr...

Abstract The effect of moisture on the fracture properties of composite bonded joints under pure mode I and pure mode II was analysed in this work. The double cantilever beam and end notched flexure tests were used for mode I and mode II fracture characterisation, respectively. Three different moisture conditions (55% and 75% of relative humidity (RH) and immersion in distilled water (IW)) were tested to assess its influence on the fracture behaviour under both pure loading modes. It was verifie...

Diffusion in semicrystalline polymers is a complex phenomenon because of the existence of specific interactions (nonpolar or polar), dynamic heterogeneities, and crystalline phases. The diffusion of water in two semicrystalline polyamides (PA6,6 and PA6,10) was investigated in order to determine the diffusion mechanisms and the influence of polymer relaxations on this process. Liquid water diffusion follows a Fickian mechanism in PA6,10 and a non-Fickian or anomalous mechanism in PA6,6. Through ...

Abstract This study presents the main fractographic aspects and failure modes involved on the fracture of scarf repaired laminates submitted to tensile test, using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) technique. A detailed analysis of the fractographic aspects was carried out correlating them to the failure modes, the local crack propagation, and the mechanical performance of the scarf joint. SEM analyses showed cohesive failure of the adhesive film associated with a strong mechanical anchoring be...
