Paper Abstract

This paper discusses analytical equations and finite-element models for thermal stresses and deformations caused by continuous edge, three-point and face elastomeric bonds. Analytical equations for the athermalized edge bond thickness are derived where possible and verified by finite-element solutions. The comparison shows that simple analytical solutions provide good estimates for thermal stresses and deformations. Advantages and disadvantages of different types of bonds are discussed.
