Fatigue evaluation of multi-material thick adhesive joints

Fatigue and lifetime analysis - Rahul Iyer Kumar | Pankaj Jaiswal

Present-day interest in the use of composite-steel joints in primary structures of marine vessels requires an in-depth knowledge of the performance of thick adhesive bonds under combined loading and environmental conditions. Multi-material thick adhesive joints are subjected to quasi-static and cyclic loading. Joints are also tested after accelerated exposure to conditions which mimic the harsh marine environment. The ultimate goal is to determine their fatigue resistance on a multi-scale component level.
