In the Performance of Adhesive Joints extension project 'Flexible Adhesives' (PAJex2) a selection of hyperelastic material models are under investigation to determine the suitability of these models for predicting the behaviour of a flexible adhesive in bonded structures. The initial adhesive selected for study appeared to be poorly characterised by the hyerelastic material models studied. It was agreed with the Industrial Advisory Group that an alternative adhesive should be studied in order to determine if its finding was applicable to other classes of flexible adhesives. Experimental and FE modelling results presented in this report indicate an improved agreement between the model predictions and test results for the polyurethane adhesive selected.
