Paper Abstract

A brief review of the properties of isotropic materials is presented (especially as it pertains to the adhesives), some techniques are discussed to minimize the size of adhesive models and the results are applied to a family of sample problems to explain the discrepancy between the apparent behavior of adhesives and the anticipated (or published) behavior. Suggestions are offered to designers to assist them in realizing the 'published behavior' in addition to the analysis suggestions for the engineer.
