Abstract:

Most literature studies show that failure of an adhesive joint occurs, in general, in the region of the adhesive-oxide interface. The three major mechanical tests used today usually provide information on only the bulk adhesive. This paper presents the use of the short beam shear test as a means of loading the adhesive-oxide interface with as much shear force as possible in order to determine any subtle changes that may occur in this area during environmental testing.
