Full text not available from this repository.


This chapter covers the large and varied field of adhesive joint testing and focuses on the applications of joint testing for load bearing structural applications, including quality control, material/process screening and design (data acquisition and verification) and developments in testing. The emphasis is on factors that affect the accuracy, relevance and reliability of the test data delivered by the joint test. The tests described were generally developed for rigid, structural adhesives, such as epoxies and acrylics, but most can also be applied to flexible adhesives. Case studies demonstrating the use of adhesive joint testing are provided.
