Uniaxial Elasto-Plastic Behaviour of Adhesively Bonded Hollow Sphere Structures (HHS): Numerical Simulations and Experiments
This paper is on the investigation of adhesively bonded metallic hollow sphere structures. Two different approaches, namely experimental analysis and finite element cal- culations are applied and the findings of both attempts are compared. In the scope of the numerical approach the influence of the mechanical properties of the adhesive on the me- chanical response of the structure is analysed. Based on these results, suggestions for design parameters are derived.
