Especially thinwalled structures are sensitive to impact loads, which mostly lead to damages, even in case of low velocity impacts. The main problem after the detection of the damaged area is the question wether the damaged structure has to be removed or must be repaired. In this case, a patch has to be joined into the damaged area. The most suitable joining procedure for composite materials is bon- ding, because the mechanical behav
