Paper Title:
Impact Fatigue of Adhesive Joints
  Abstract

The paper presents results of studies into the effect of repetitive low-energy impacting (known as impact fatigue) on reliability and crack growth in adhesively bonded joints. This type of loading is compared to the standard tensile fatigue in order to assess severity of such loading regime. Another loading type studied is a combination of a small portion of repetitive impacts with tensile fatigue. Crack propagation in a joint exposed to these types of loading is studied experimentally and numerically (with finite elements). This analysis is accompanied by microstructural studies of various damage processes, active at different stages of the crack growth process.
