Mechanical Testing and Evaluation
Testing of Adhesive Joints
Adhesive joints involve joining parts by bonding component parts together with an adhesive. This article provides a discussion on the purpose of testing adhesive joints and on the factors influencing mechanical strength of these joints. It describes the various tests used in the measurement of adhesive joint strength. These include qualitative tests, peel tests, lap shear tests, tensile tests, and adhesive fracture mechanics tests.
