    • Fracture analysis of adhesive-bonded single-lap composite joints 

      Sun, Wenjun; Yang, Chihdar Charles (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering, 2004-05)
      A fracture mechanics model to estimate the energy release rate of adhesive-bonded single-lap composite joints under tension has been developed. The stress distributions of the adhesive-bonded single-lap composite joint ...
    • Strain energy release rate analysis of adhesive-bounded composite laminate joints with a cohesive crack 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Dan-Jumbo, Eugene; Keller, Russell L.; Garg, V.; Raju, Salahuddin (American Society for Composites (ASC) & Canadian Association Composites Structures and Materials (CACSMA), 2009-09)
      Fiber-reinforced composites have been widely used in the aviation industry due to their light weight and high corrosion resistance. In many applications, bolted joints have been replaced by adhesive-bonded joints because ...
