Paper Abstract

Numerous authors have investigated the state of stress in the adhesive of adhesively bonded joints. They have made various assumptions concerning the behavior of the adhesive and adherends to yield tractable differential equations which remove the stress singularities which occur at the edges of the bi-material interfaces. By examining several test problems, this paper investigates the effect of these assumptions on predicted adhesive stress.
