A joint study on bonded joints

From 21 to 23 September 2016, the city of Glasgow had the honour of hosting the 11th edition of the EURADH conference that gathered the most eminent specialists of the science and technology of adhesion and adhesives. Our colleague Jean Legendre, Research Engineer, was invited to present the results of a joint study by the Dupuy de Lôme Research Institute, ENSTA Bretagne/UBO/ENIB/UEB/LimatB and ArcelorMittal Global Research and Development.

The purpose of this study consists in investigating the role of steel plasticity on the failure pattern of single lap bonded joint. Such analysis contributes to a better understanding of the behaviour of joint automotive parts in specific conditions.
