Standard Guide for Use of Adhesive-Bonded Single Lap-Joint Specimen Test Results
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Adhesives):||83.180|
1.1 This guide is directed toward the safe and appropriate use of strength values obtained from test methods using single-lap adhesive joint specimens.
1.2 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.
