FEA of Fatigue Behaviour of Adhesively Bonded Joints
Adhesive bonding is a high-speed fastening method which is suitable for joining advanced lightweight sheet materials that are hard to weld. Latest literature relating to finite element analysis (FEA) of fatigue behaviour of adhesively bonded joints is reviewed in this paper. The recent development in FEA of fatigue behaviour of adhesively bonded joints is described with particular reference to three major factors that influence the fatigue behaviour of adhesively bonded joints: failure mechanism, environmental effects and hybrid joining techniques. The main FE methods used in FEA of fatigue behaviour of adhesively bonded joints are discussed and illustrated with brief case studies from the literature.
