Abstract
Fatigue of structural adhesives has been investigated through joints and a little number of works investigate bulk adhesive behaviour itself. Aerospace and automotive engineering focuses more on jo...

Abstract This paper investigates the effects of degassing, curing and post-curing conditions on the tensile quasi-static and fatigue behavior of a cold-curing structural epoxy adhesive. Quasi-static experiments performed at standardized and high displacement rates similar to those imposed to the material under fatigue loading, in order to derive comparable results from both loadings, and tensile-tensile fatigue tests at a fixed stress ratio, were carried out. Digital image correlation, video ext...

Abstract In this work, a thermoplastic adhesive used by automotive industries for bonding plastic components has been modified with iron oxide nanoparticles to ease the dismounting process. Two different processes have been considered for the joint dismounting, namely the already studied electromagnetic induction and an innovative microwave heating process. Besides the mentioned heating activation process, a full experimental plan has been designed that includes two different weight percentages ...

Abstract The strength and cracking behaviour under fatigue loading of additively manufactured polylactide (PLA) was investigated experimentally to quantify and model the role of notches. These tests were run under load ratios equal to -1 and to 0. Being supported by the experimental evidence, 3D-printed PLA was treated as a linear-elastic, isotropic, and homogenous material. This allowed the use of the Theory of Critical Distances to be extended also to the fatigue assessment of notched 3D-print...

Abstract Investigations of the fatigue performance of composite materials have accompanied their introduction in several engineering domains since the 1950s. An abundance of publications have emerged dealing with the experimental investigation of the fatigue performance of composites under different loading and environmental conditions, as well as the development of theories for the modeling of the fatigue behavior and/or prediction of the fatigue life of the materials systems under consideratio...

The effect of adhesive thickness on fatigue crack growth in an epoxy film adhesive (FM94) was investigated, using a combination of experiments and numerical modelling. For the range of thicknesses investigated an increased thickness led to an increased crack growth rate. It was found that the energy required per unit of crack growth did not depend on the adhesive thickness. In contrast, the energy available for crack growth does depend on the adhesive thickness. The numerical analysis confirms t...

Abstract The most important point to be taken into consideration in the use of bonding joints is the reliability of the joints created with the adhesive. Therefore, many analytical, experimental and numerical studies have been done to determine the mechanical properties of adhesives and to ensure the reliable use of adhesively bonding joints. This study presents the first stage of the two-stage study, which aims to determine the mechanical properties of the DP410 structural adhesive in the first...

Abstract As far as polymers are concerned, polylactide (PLA) is certainly the polymeric compound that is most commonly used along with commercial additive manufacturing technologies. In this context, the present paper aims to investigate the influence of manufacturing direction and superimposed static stresses on the fatigue strength of PLA 3D-printed by using the Fused Filament Fabrication technique. This was done not only by generating a large number of new experimental results, but also by re...

Abstract null null The subject of mechanical metamaterials has been gaining significant attention, however, their widespread application is still halted. Such materials are usually considered as stand-alone, vis-a-vis all characteristic length scales being associated solely with geometry of material itself. In this work we propose novel application of mechanical metamaterials as interface regions joining two materials with potential of replacing bulk adhesives. This idea leads into paradigm shif...

Abstract The tension-tension fatigue behavior of ductile adhesively-bonded double-lap FRP joints was experimentally investigated. An acrylic adhesive, which was in the rubbery state at ambient temperature, provided the joint ductility. The fatigue degradation of the joints was characterized by the cyclic energy dissipation, cyclic stiffness, cyclic creep displacement and self-generated temperature. The effects of elevated temperature on the joints’ static tensile and pure creep behaviors were al...
