Abstract

The stresses in adhesive bonded Tee joints, subjected to two linear and one bending moment loads, have been analysed using finite element method. It was assumed that the adhesive and adherends had linear elastic properties. The influences on the stress distributions of the overlap length, adhesive thickness and the fillet of the angle plate are investigated. It was found that experimental results were in good agreement with those of the FE analysis. Introduction The technology of adhesive bonded joints is currently employed in many structural components and machine elements to improve the joint performance. The possible use of adhesive bonded joints in a new engineering design should always be considered, due to light weight, stiff structure and possible economic benefits. Adhesive bonding skills are still not widely applied in practice,
