The adhesive experience higher stress level than those close to left free end, which results in uneven crack length of top and bottom interfaces. 3 Effects of Interface Damage on Adhesive Layer The damage effects of cohesive elements at interfaces on stress distributions in adhesive layer have been investigated in this section. First, attention has been drawn to the change in stress distribution of plain strain elements within the adhesive along overlap length at different times. 5 MPa/s. 14 Shear stress distributions along overlap length at different times.

22. M. Y. Tsai and J. Morton, Composite Structures 32, 123-131 (1995). 2 Finite Element Modeling of Viscoelastic Behavior and Interface Damage in Adhesively Bonded Joints Feifei Cheng, Ö. N. Reddy Advanced Computational Mechanics Laboratory, Department of Mechanical Engineering,Texas A&M University, Texas, USA Abstract This paper presents a study on viscoelastic behavior of the adhesive and damage analysis of adhesive-adherend interfaces in adhesively bonded joints. First, viscoelastic finite element analysis of a model joint with viscoelastic adhesive has been conducted while considering geometric nonlinearity as well as thermal expansion.

10 Stress applied vs. horizontal displacement at right end of the model joint. Finite Element Modeling 37 viscoelastic material properties. 10 is that qx stops growing as the horizontal displacement increases. When one of cracks propagates through the whole overlap length, the bonded joint system will totally fail and qx will drop to zero. 10. This means the bonded joint system will suddenly reach a complete failure and qx becomes zero. Also, it can be seen that the elastic case fails at a lower qx than the viscoelastic case.
