Strength Analysis of Adhesively Bonded AA6082-T6 Al Alloy Lap Joint

Authors(3) :-Sunil Amarsingh Patil, B. D. Bachchhav, C. S. Choudhari

AA6082-T6 is widely used in modern automotive and aviation industries. The usage of adhesive bonding offers the reduced weight and cost as compared with mechanical bonding. The single lap joint with metallic flat plates is the most common due to its simplicity in many applications. The safety and reliability of these bonds depend on appropriate design. In this paper experimental investigations were carried out in order to evaluate shear strength of adhesively bonded AA6082-T6 Aluminium alloy under lap joint. Three adhesives were procured from different manufacturers. Effects of adhesive type, adherence thickness, surface texture pattern depth and type of adhesive on shear strength were experimentally evaluated using Taguchi technique. Experiments were carried out on universal testing machine. Analyses of variance were carried out and percentage contribution of each factor was evaluated in order to determine a joint strength. This study will help to design appropriate joint which may lead to manufacture highly durable products.
