The Effect of the Adhesive Thickness on the Strength of a Bonded Joint
Adhesives have been used in structural applications for many years now. With most modern high peel strength adhesives joint failure in metal to metal bonds will invariably occur through a cohesive failure of the adhesive. Thus it is a reasonable premise that analysis based on the material properties of the adhesive and adherend should provide a good tool for joint design.
