Abstract: Joining behavior of long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (LFT) by three types of adhesive was investigated. Single-lap shear testing was used to evaluate the performance of adhesively bonded structures. The two-part acrylic adhesive DP8005 was determined to be the best among the three adhesive candidates, which was attributed to its low surface energy. The stress distribution in the adhesive layer of the single lap joint was modeled by static elastic analysis using ANSYS software. The shear and peel stresses peaked at the edges of the adhesive layer.

Abstract: Based on popular and maturate application of the finite element analysis method, a numerical study is presented for effect of parameters, that are composed of lap length, adhesive thickness and ply styles of adherend, on maximum peel/shear stress of T700/EXOPY composite single-lap adhesive joints in this paper. Finite element simulations are carried out to analyze the peel/shear stress fields along the interfaces between the adhesive and the adherends. The simulation results show that the joint maximum peel/shear stress decreases with increasing the lap length, and peel stress of the joint of adherends of ply style [0/90/±45/0]S is much less, and the maximum shear stress in the interfaces between the adhesive layer and the adherends do not dcreases all the times with increasing the adhesive thickness. Good agreements between the present simulations and the experimental results are found.

Abstract: Adhesive joints are largely employed nowadays as a fast and effective joining process. The respective techniques for strength prediction have also improved over the years. Cohesive Zone Models (CZM’s) coupled to Finite Element Method (FEM) analyses surpass the limitations of stress and fracture criteria and allow modelling damage. CZM’s require the energy release rates in tension (Gn) and shear (Gs) and respective fracture energies in tension (Gnc) and shear (Gsc). Additionally, the cohesive strengths (tn0 for tension and ts0 for shear) must also be defined. In this work, the influence of the CZM parameters of a triangular CZM used to model a thin adhesive layer is studied, to estimate their effect on the predictions. Some conclusions were drawn for the accuracy of the simulation results by variations of each one of these parameters.

Abstract: In the present paper, results of experimental tests carried out on hybrid (bonded/bolted) and adhesive composite single-lap joints are showed. The laminate adherends were made by unidirectional carbon fiber/epoxy with symmetric stacking sequence. In particular, the tests were carried out to evaluate strength and failure mode of the different joints. These joints were subjected to quasi-static tensile displacement and tests were conducted using a universal testing machine. The maximum tension load that the specimen can bear is determined and the failure process is correlated to the lay-up of the composite and joint type.
