Paper Title:
Shear Strength Prediction of Single Lap Joints Based on Latin Hypercube Method
  Abstract

Adhesive bonded single lap joints are used extensively in the manufacture of automobile structures. However, the joints involve many factors such as the overlap, the adherend thickness, the adherend yield strength etc. Therefore, strength prediction is a controversial issue. In order to quantify the effects of various variables, Latin Hypercube method was used to design the tests of simulation in the present study. The failure load predictive equation involving the factors of the overlap, the adherend thickness, the adherend yield strength, the adhesive thickness, the test speed and the adhesive toughness were achieved. The tests of single lap joints in tension load were carried on; while the results form experiments and formula were compared to verify its validation for strength prediction.
