This paper deals with forced vibration behavior of adhesively bonded single-lap joint theoretically and experimentally. The finite element analysis (FEA) software was used to predict the natural frequencies and frequency response functions (FRFs) of the joint. The dynamic test software and the data acquisition hardware were used in experimental measurement of the dynamic response of the joint. It is shown that the natural frequencies of the joint from experiment are lower than those predicted using finite element analysis. It is also found that the measued FRFs are close to the predicted FRFs for the first two modes of vibration of the joint. Above the second mode of vibration, there is considerable discrepancy between the measured and predicted FRFs.
