Interfacial Fracture Toughness of Adhesively Bonded Joints

Article Preview

The aim of the present paper is to evaluate the interfacial fracture toughness of an Al/Epoxy adhesive system with a crack lying at the interface. A cracked lap shear specimen loaded in four point bending is adopted and the fracture toughness is pointed out in terms of the critical complex stress intensity factor. To this aim numerical analyses of the fracture specimen have been carried out using a commercial finite element code. In addition, fracture surfaces are analyzed and the locus of failure is discussed.
