Stress Analysis and Fatigue Strength on Adhesive Joints
Fatigue strength of steel sheet adhesive joints was investigated. From the results of the fatigue tests, it was obtained that the fatigue strength of the tensile-shear adhesive joints was much higher than that of the T-type tension adhesive joints. Stress distributions on adhesive layer have been analyzed by theoretical analysis method. All of the data obtained by the fatigue tests fell almost on one S/N curve, in spite of the differences of joints type and plate thickness, if the equivalent stress(Mises stress) range of the adhesive layer at the periphery of the end of the jointed part obtained by theoretical analysis was taken as the ordinate of S/N curve.
