Abstract

Ultrasonic immersion and spectroscopic procedures are presented that are applicable for predicting and evaluating bond strength in an aluminum-to-aluminum step lap Scotch-Weld 2216 structural adhesive joint. A consideration of the nonlinear shear stress distribution in the bond and the effects on evaluating a programmed flaw are included in the paper. It is shown that it is possible to establish a reasonable correlation between bond strength and some nondestructive testing parameter. Limitations of the methods are reviewed.
