Abstract:

A photoelastic analysis was made of the shear stress distribution in an .064-inch aluminum alloy, adhesive-bonded lap joint. The adhesive that was used was a photoelastic material. The stress distribution was studied directly on the adhesive itself in the joint as a function of increasing load and length of overlap of the adherends. The experimental distribution that was obtained was compared with that predicted by the theoretical analysis of Goland and Reissner.
