Mechanical performance of the adhesive joints depends on many parameters including width, depth and continuity of the adhesive layer applied.

Abstract

Mechanical performance of the adhesive joints depends on many parameters including width, depth and continuity of the adhesive layer applied. In this work, lock-in thermography and ultrasound methods were used to detect the dimension of defects of adhesive joints while tensile tests were carried out to assess their strength and stiffness. Both the effect of bond defects and the possibility to use non destructive method for the prediction of strength and stiffness of joints have been discussed considering a statistical analysis of data. Models, useful for predicting mechanical behavior of joints on the basis of their defects, have been developed. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
