Abstract

The paper is focused on the static strength of adhesively bonded structural joints and seeks a simplecalculation rule that can assist the designer in everyday engineering practice. The work encompassesthree steps. In the first step, an experimental campaign is carried out on an assortment of customizedbonded joints (single lap and T-peel) made of steel strips bonded by an acrylic structural adhesive. Thedimensions of the joints are chosen so as to produce a wide range of combinations of shear and peelstresses in the adhesive layer. In the second step, the stress analysis of the joints is performed by meansof a sandwich model that describes the variability of shear and peel stresses over the overlap length butdisregards the stress singularities at the corners. In the third step, a design rule is inferred by notingthat, in a chart having as axes the peak values of the peel and shear components in the adhesive atfailure, the points—calculated for each joint at the 2% (deviation from linearity) proof load—define alimit zone. The inferred design rule is that the adhesive withstands the load if the representative pointof the stress state lies inside this zone. For the tested case, the envelope of the limit zone has anapproximately rectangular shape. This criterion predicts the failure load of the joints far better than thesimplistic approach based on the nominal stress calculated as the ratio of the load to the bonded area.The paper also discusses the response which is obtained by applying, to the same experimental data,the traditional calculation based on the mean stress (force to area ratio), and the more sophisticatedapproach based on the stress intensity factor, which accounts for the singularity of the stress field.Applied to our experimental data, the performance of both has been unsatisfactory.
