Dynamic study of adhesively bonded double lap composite joints

Essersi, O., Tarfaoui, M., Boyd, S.W., Meraghni, F. and Shenoi, R.A. (2009) Dynamic study of adhesively bonded double lap composite joints At 17th International Conference on Composite Materials (ICCM-17). 27 - 31 Jul 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Composite structures may be subjected to high loading rates in naval applications.Hence, the composite assembly’s dynamic behaviour needs investigation. This paperpresents an investigation on the structural rate dependent behaviour of adhesivelybounded double lap joints. High rate tests showed ringing in the force/displacementcurves. An attempt was made to determine the origins of this phenomenon.
