Adhesives: Mechanical Properties, Technologies and Economic Importance

In this book, some interesting technologies and applications dedicated to adhesives are presented and discussed. First, the interference fitted and adhesively bonded joints are extensively studied as an effective means to increase the transferable load while reducing both the weight and the stress level of the joined components. In such type of joints, the influence of the assembly technique on the shear strength of the joints has been investigated. Therefore, the shear strength of hybrid joints realized by ‘press fitting’, by ‘shrink fitting’ or by ‘cryogenic fitting’ were compared in order to suggest the best way of joining both for technological and economic importance.

Then, some design aspects for practical applications (for instance, in the automotive steel wheel) were analyzed. The adhesive and interference contributions to the resultant resistance of the hybrid joint were carried out with particular attention to the phenomena occurring at the interface. The effect of the adhesive nature, its curing technology and its mechanical response were strongly related to the type of adhesive exploited. Also, the static and fatigue strength properties of press fitted and adhesively bonded joints was studied by considering their Engagement Ratio, which is the ratio between the coupling length and the coupling diameter. Coupling and decoupling tests have been performed both on press-fitted and adhesively bonded specimens and on pin-collar samples, considering four different levels for the Engagement Ratio. The study shows that the Engagement Ratio has a negligible effect on the shear strength of the adhesive and also on the relationship between the decoupling and the coupling forces.

Then, the assessment of the adhesive performance of two binders for reassembling fragment porous stones and, more specifically, the effect of nano-titania in the hydration and carbonation of the derived mortars was investigated. The mechanical characterization indicated that the mortars with the nano-titania addition showed improved mechanical properties when compared to the specimens without nano-titania. This property can be exploited in the fabrication of mortars for reassembling fragments of porous limestones from monuments, where the presence of humidity controls the mortar setting and adhesion efficiency. Based on the physico-chemical and mechanical characterization of the studied adhesive mortars with nano-titania, binders of metakaolin-lime and natural hydraulic lime have been selected as the most appropriate formulations for the adhesion of fragment porous stones in restoration applications. Furthermore, the adhesive crack propagation was investigated for some load bearing applications.

It was determined that fatigue cracks, either induced by defects or by applied stresses, may appear and propagate, thus becoming potentially harmful for the structural integrity of a part or a whole structure. Case studies are presented and discussed for adhesively bonded single lap joint (SLJ). Finally, a numerical method able to reproduce three-dimensionally the fatigue debonding and/or delamination evolution in bonded structures is proposed in this book in order to improve their performances. The cohesive zone model previously developed by the authors to simulate fatigue crack growth at interfaces in 2D geometries is extended to 3D cracks under mixed-mode I/II loading (Imprint: Novinka)

REFUNDS/RETURNS: Oz Robotics accepts returns on a minimal basis unless there is a manufacturing defect. For any electronic items, returns are only accepted on devices with serious and irreversible problems; meanwhile, the customer must apply for the returns within 7 days from the delivery date. Before a refund acceptance, please include images or a video and any other material proof of the defect. However, we abide by the exchange policy of our suppliers because we do not manufacture these products; our suppliers do.

Other than our supplier’s default policy, once a return is agreed upon, then you can ship your defective item to the provided return address that you should receive from us first. Please ship the order in original packaging with all the accessories and additional parts. If the Required Parts are not sent back, they will be billed for or expected to be shipped at a later stage. And only once all items have arrived as a full system can we check the returned product for testing. Include in your package a signed letter stating the reason for your return and the original receipt as well as any mentioned proof of defect, images, or a video, etc. This will help us to speed up the process on your behalf.

The purchaser (customer/buyer) is responsible for all shipping costs when returning an item. However, upon receiving the returned order, we will assess the product. If it is determined that there is, in fact, a manufacturing defect, then we will refund the shipping costs as well as repair or replace or refund the full amount to the purchaser if the product is not fixable.

If you wish to return an unused product, please do so within 7 days from the ship date for a refund on the purchase price, minus shipping, handling. Refunds will be credited to the original credit card use for payment in 24-48 HOURS after receiving the product back. We will charge 50% restocking fee.

Once your return is received and inspected, and if agreed for a refund, refunds will be credited to the original credit card used for payment in 24-48 hours. Please note that we will charge a 50% restocking fee if you want to return a product without any defect.

Once your refund is processed, then PayPal will return the money to the card that was used. It may take at least 5 business days (depending on the bank and credit company) before your refund is officially posted in your bank account and statements.
