Characterisation and modelling of the rate-dependent behaviour of adhesive bonded interfaces

Abstract:

This thesis develops a numerical and experimental framework to model and characterise the rate-dependent mechanical performance of adhesively bonded structures. Experimental methods suitable for various strain rates – including impact – enable direct measurement of mechanical properties to derive accurate adhesive interface models – such as the cohesive zone modelling approach. First, this thesis explores a newly developed experimental method. This was developed to enable the characterisat...
