Mechanical Properties of a Multi-Material Flexible Adhesive Joint


Nowadays industries tend to replace conventional with new advanced materials to reduce weight and improve overall performance. However, the use of dissimilar materials together in such designs brings risks such as stress concentrations in the integration of any joints. In this paper, a configuration of a multi-material flexible adhesive joint is introduced. It consists of three adherends, which are two different rigid materials for the outer layers and a flexible material for the inner layer. Properties of this joint under mechanical and thermal loadings were investigated. The novel adhesive joints developed showed good mechanical properties for integration and self-adaption regarding to varying thermal environments.
