The high viscosity gives rise to difficulties in application of the adhesives and may limit the wettability which in tum causes voids formation when spreading the viscous blend over the adherend surface.
The curved lap joints were obtained separately for the adherend thickness of h=6.5 mm, the overlap length of l=25 mm and radii of r=100, 300,500.
Contrary to the two coupled nonlinear governing equations for an adhesive adherend sandwich of the single-lap type, Tong proved that the product of the adhesive strain energy density and the adhesive thickness is equal to the energy release rate J of mode I, mode II, and mixed fractures [21].
The cause of the residual error was believed to be the inability of the model to account for changes in adherend rigidity, which would affect the solder joint constraint and hence the extent of its plastic deformation.
At a high enough load, the adherend will detach from the substrate starting from the edge and proceed to the center as shown In the figure.

Among specific topics are preparing thick adherend shear test specimens, quasi-testing bulk compression on flat specimens, the pin-and-collar test method, the compact mixed mode fracture test method, testing adhesive bonds under peel and shear loads at increased velocities, and measuring time-dependent crack growth.
One could attempt to calculate how changes at the adhesion interface would affect the work of adhesion (27), (29), (30) via changes in concentration of polar groups etc., perhaps ultimately leaving only Van der Waals forces to sustain adhesion, but this is not attempted here because it would depend on the chemistry of each substrate, as well as the chemistry of each adherend. If the solvent has a greater affinity for the substrate than the polymer, then presumably the adhesion of the polymer would eventually be eliminated.
It is configured as to be heated and applied to an adherend. The heat-sensitive adhesive material exhibits such an adhesive strength to the adherend as to increase with time from immediately after applying the heat-sensitive adhesive material to the adherend.
According to current adhesion theories, the main mechanism for adhesion involves intimate molecular contact, attained by intermolecular or valence forces exerted by molecules in the surface layers of the adhesive and adherend. The task then is to create new bonding sites on the surface of the polymer.
Furthermore, as potential factors for bond durability, lower dimensional changes of modified wood during water sorption limit the movement of the adherend and, thus, promote homogenous stress distributions (Frihart et al.
The effect of different material and geometric parameters (the ratio of the adherend lengths, the ratio of the adherend thickness, and Young's modulus ratio between different adherends) on stress state near the interface point of the single-lap joints using the finite element analysis (FEA) and experimental measurements were studied in Sawa et al.'s paper [8].
