On the shear rate, i.e. the materials' flow curve, to get reliable estimates of the volumetric flow rate under given pressure drops or vice versa. Several GNF models will now be covered since they are fairly important in engineering calculations ( 4 , Chapt. 4). However, we will limit our discussion of how other constitutive equations based on continuum mechanics can be constructed (using some of the ideas mentioned above) to merely a verbal sketch of the mathematical process.

Non-dimensional plot of the load-displacement curves for a DCB specimen with different values of the fracture parameters 4 . is appropriate only when the normalized parameter Er 0 o2h is very small (i.e., a large cohesive strength, a low intrinsic toughness of the adhesive layer, or very thick adherends). In particular, it should be noted that if the peak load is used with Eq. 2.6 to calculate the energy-release rate at fracture, this value will result in an underestimate of the...

Depending on the amount of energy released upon fiber failure, this microcrack may or may not propagate into the matrix and or the interphase, depending on the level of adhesion between fiber and matrix. Then, the resulting stress distribution will depend on the mechanical properties of the fiber, the matrix and the interphase and the extent of the damaged zone around the fiber break.

Again, it is the stress intensity factor that distinguishes the crack-tip stress distribution from one loading and crack geometry to another. A large variety of methods exist for determining the stress intensity factor associated with a particular configuration as can be seen from the compilation by Tada et al. 55 , When finite element methods are used for the stress analysis of cracked components, stress intensity factors may be extracted by examining the displacement solution near the crack...

The solution for the uniform edge pressure can be thought of as providing the fundamental singular solution, and the characteristic stress defined in Eqs. 11 and 12 is the stress superimposed with the edge pressure to obtain a stress-free edge.

## The durability of adhesive joints

Department of Mechanical Engineering, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, Exhibition Rd London SW7 2BX, UK One of the most important requirements of an adhesive joint is the ability to retain a significant proportion of its load-bearing capability for long periods under the wide variety of environmental conditions which are likely to be encountered during its service-life. Unfortunately, for the reasons outlined later, one of the most hostile environments for joints involving...

Hence pressure and thrust measurements, via Eqs. 175 and 178, allow one to calculate N and While the cone and plate geometry is the preferred arrangement to obtain the steady viscometric functions, it is limited to low shear rates usually, to those less than 10 s '. At higher shear rates encountered in processing 10 106 s_l), it is customary to resort to capillary rheometry to measure the shear viscosity. Unfortunately, the normal stress differences cannot be obtained from this test. To get Ni...

The two representative specimens with different surface preparations revealed that the interface properties significantly affect the crack propagation behavior. Advanced surface preparation techniques enhance the adhesion between the adhesive and the substrates and consequently, the rate dependence of the locus of failure is reduced. Of particular significance, however, is that the debond did not propagate exclusively at the weaker interface. The stress state destabilized the debond, leading to...

## 4 Summary

This paper has provided an in-depth discussion on the fracture of adhesive joints with a focus on how to deduce the 'intrinsic' fracture parameters of the adhesive layer from experimental results. The approach of using these parameters in cohesive-zone models to predict the fracture of adhesive joints has been outlined. By using this approach, many important issues that are frequently encountered in the fracture testing of adhesive joints, yet are usually ignored by traditional fracture...

Peel stress at the first ply interface under load. can be of sufficient magnitude to cause interlaminar failure of the adherend prior to adhesive failure. Although such failure was not seen in these joints, probably because of the more brittle nature of the adhesive used compared with the rubber-toughened (CTBN) adhesive used by Adams et al., it was, nevertheless, important to consider the stress distribution within the adherend. As can be seen from Fig. 11,...

The Auger depth profiling method was then used for those specimens, in which the failure appeared to occur at or near the interface. As shown in Table 5, in the mode I test, the thicknesses of the residual adhesive layer on the failure surfaces were about 250 xm for all the specimens with different surface preparations, which indicated that the failures all occurred in the middle of the adhesive layer in the test regardless of the surface preparation method since the total...

The commonly held approximation that the behavior in peel at a given elongation rate is dominated by the viscoelastic properties at the equivalent frequency is shown to be crude at best and misleading at worst. The work of Piau et al. 23 follows a similar pattern. Modeling is done using the measured stress-strain behavior of the adhesive, the measured elongation at detachment from visualization of the peel front and the measured peel force. They show that the...

Phantom Works, The Boeing Company, Huntington Beach, CA, USA Designing successful adhesively bonded joints is straightforward, provided that one pays close attention to a small number of critical issues, none of which is difficult to comprehend and none of which is any more difficult to comply with than to ignore.

In this case, cracks run along the interface between two materials due to interactions between the stress field in the adhesive layer and spatial variations in fracture properties. The cracks are not generally free to evolve as mode I cracks, as was the case for cohesive cracks, and mixed-mode fracture concepts combinations of tension and shear have to be considered. Mode II or shear components are induced, even in what appear to be nominally mode I loadings, due to differences in moduli about...

For peel loading, bending of the flexible adherend results in relative shear deformations within the bondline, again demonstrating coupling often seen between shear and peel stresses in bonded joints. the adherend results in a relative horizontal translation of the adherend surface with respect to substrate.
