Stress Distribution of Bonded Joint with Rubbery Adhesives


Article Preview

This paper deals with the stress distribution in adhesively bonded joints with rubbery adhesives. The 3-D finite element analysis (FEA) software was used to model the joint and predict the stress distribution along the whole joint. The FEA results indicated that there are stress discontinuities existing in the stress distribution within the adhesive layer and adherends at the lower interface and the upper interface of the boded section for most of the stress components. The FEA results also show that the stress field in the whole joint is dominated by the normal stresses components S11, S33 and the shear stress component S13. The features and variations of these critical stresses components are discussed.
