Abstract:

A study has been made of problems associated with use of aerospace structural adhesives. Consideration is given to the state of the art and future needs in synthesis and formulation of adhesives. The role of interfaces is discussed from a physical chemical point of view. Manufacturing and processing aspects of adhesive use are considered. Data and theory are given for mechanical behavior, permanence, and related areas. Problems of design analysis, specification, and test methods are taken up. Performance, reliability, strategies, and future applications conclude this study.
