    • Analytical modeling of ASTM lap shear adhesive specimens. FInal report 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Tomblin, John S.; Guan, Zhidong (National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 2003-02)
      An analytical model was developed to predict the stress distribution within the specimen specified in ASTM D 3165 Strength Properties of Adhesives in Shear by Tension Loading of Single-Lap-Joint Laminated Assemblies. In ...
    • 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 ...
    • Impact response of single-lap composite joints 

      Pang, Su-Seng; Yang, Chihdar Charles; Zhao, Yi (Elsevier, 1995)
      The low-velocity impact of adhesive-bonded single-lap composite joints has been studied using a spring-mass model. In this quasi-static model, the impact response is represented by a time-dependent force, and the target ...
    • Investigation of adhesive behavior in aircraft applications 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Tomblin, John S. (National Technical Information Service (NTIS), 2001-09)
      There are two parts included in this report. The first part evaluates the most commonly used test method for adhesive properties, ADTM D 5656 Standard Test Method for Thick-Adherend Metal Lap-Shear Joints for Determination ...
    • Strain energy release rate analysis of bonded structural composite joints with a prescribed crack 

      Yang, Chihdar Charles; Dan-Jumbo, Eugene; Sun, Wenjun (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), 2006)
      Advanced composite materials have been widely used due to their light weight and high corrosion resistance. In many of these applications, bolted joint shave been replaced by adhesively bonded joints because of the weight ...
