A simplified finite element approach based on reduced models with minimum degrees of freedom was applied to the post-elastic analysis of bonded joints. The reduced model describes the adherends by means of structural elements (beams or shells) and the adhesive by a single strip of solid elements (plane-stress or brick). Internal kinematic constraints were applied to link the adherends and adhesive meshes. The accuracy and the efficiency of the reduced models in providing the force–displacement curve of T-peel joints were evaluated through a numerical test campaign by comparison with full finite element analyses. The test campaign was designed as a 2-level factorial experiment involving four variables: the skew angle of the T-peel (45 and 90◦), the thickness of the adherends (2 and 3 mm), the material of the adherends (aluminium and steel) and the stress–strain behaviour of the adhesive (brittle and perfectly plastic). The results show that the reduced model reproduces with fair accuracy the load–displacement curves of the joints at a fraction of the computational cost of the full model. The elastic stiffness, the yield load and the deformation energy were predicted within an error of 7%, 15% and 36%, respectively, with processing times that were typically 50 times shorter than the full model.
