Standard Guide for Use of Adhesive-Bonded Single Lap-Joint Specimen Test Results
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
This guide is directed toward the safe and appropriate use of strength values obtained from test methods using single-lap adhesive joint specimens.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
The discussion focuses on shear strength as measured with small thin-adherend, single-lap specimens. Many factors, however, apply to shear modulus, tensile strength, and tensile modulus measured by small laboratory specimens in general. This discussion is limited to single-lap specimens and shear strength only for simplification.
