Abstract Structural adhesives are being increasingly used for bonding of dissimilar materials, however environmental degradation remains a significant challenge limiting the bonding reliability. A common form of degradation comes from water ingress, regarding which there is limited quantitative understanding of how water diffusion affects the adhesive local mechanical properties. This work proposes a meso-scale approach to characterise the influence of water diffusion on local mechanical propert...

ABSTRACTPolymeric materials are prone to creep loading. This paper is aimed to study the effect of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on creep behavior of adhesively bonded joints. Neat and MWCNTs-reinforced adhesively bonded joints were manufactured and tested under creep loading at elevated temperatures. Two MWCNT weight percentages of 0.1 and 0.3 were used for reinforcing the single lap joints (SLJs) and the joints were tested at different temperature and load levels. The results showed t...

ABSTRACTImprovement of the mechanical properties of adhesives and adhesive joints has been a subject of great interest in recent years. Up to now, several methods have been presented such as modifying substrate shapes, adding microparticles (MPs) and nanoparticles (NPs), and embedding micro and macrofibers in the adhesive layer. This review aims to investigate how these reinforcements of different scales in the adhesive layer influence the mechanical properties of adhesive joints and adhesives. ...

Abstract Effects of silica nanoparticle aggregation on the creep behavior of polymer nanocomposites are analyzed. For this purpose, a hierarchical micromechanical model based on the Mori-Tanaka (M-T) scheme is proposed. Formation of interphase region due to the interfacial interaction between the polymer matrix and nanoparticle is incorporated in the modeling. Comparison between the proposed model results considering the viscoelastic interphase shows a good agreement with existing experiment. At...

ABSTRACTThe viscoelastic nature of polymeric adhesives means that the effect of fatigue frequency has to be treated cautiously. However, this subject has received limited attention and very few studies can be found. Therefore, this work aims at investigating the cyclic creep response of adhesively bonded steel lap joints. Load-controlled fatigue tests were performed with shear stresses of 9.1, 7.4, and 6.3 MPa, which are typically low cycle fatigue stresses. Only during the last 20% of fatigue l...

Abstract Advancements in materials technology and the use of innovative designs have led to extensive application of adhesive bonding techniques in the electric appliance industry. While the static strength of such joints is sufficient for the intended applications, long term durability remains a major concern, mainly due to creep effects. Conventional creep testing can be performed at the service temperature but it is a long test that can take decades, although it can be accelerated using high ...

Monolithic epoxy, because of its brittleness, cannot prevent crack propagation and is vulnerable to fracture. However, it is well established that when reinforced—especially by nano-fillers, such as metallic oxides, clays, carbon nanotubes, and other carbonaceous materials—its ability to withstand crack propagation is propitiously improved. Among various nano-fillers, graphene has recently been employed as reinforcement in epoxy to enhance the fracture related properties of the produced epoxy–gr...

Nanofilled polymeric matrices have demonstrated remarkable mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. In this article we review the processing of carbon nanotube, graphene, and clay montmorillonite platelet as potential nanofillers to form nanocomposites. The various functionalization techniques of modifying the nanofillers to enable interaction with polymers are summarized. The importance of filler dispersion in the polymeric matrix is highlighted. Finally, the challenges and future outloo...

This work presents a review of several investigations on the topic of adhesive bonding at high and low temperatures. Durability and strength at extreme temperatures have always been a major limitation of adhesives that, given their polymeric nature, exhibit substantial degradation at temperatures where other structural materials (such as metals for example) have minute changes in mechanical properties. However, due to the inherent advantages of bonding, there is a large and continued effort aimi...
