The Mechanics of Adhesion, Adhesion Science and Engineering

Adhesion science and technology is inherently an interdisciplinary field, requiring fundamental understanding of mechanics, surfaces, and materials, the topics emphasized in this Adhesion Science and Engineering series. This volume focuses attention on the contribution of mechanics principles and solutions to understanding the fabrication, design, analysis, and testing of adhesive bonds. Building on the fundamentals laid by such noted mechanicians as Winkler, Timoshenko, Volkersen, Goland, Reissner, Williams, Gent, and Johnson, this volume offers a comprehensive overview of the current understanding of stresses, deformation, and fracture parameters associated with a range of adhesive bonds.

Starting with a background and introduction to stress transfer principles (Chapter l), fracture mechanics and singularities (Chapter 2), and an energy approach to debonding (Chapter 3), the volume continues with analysis of structural lap (Chapter 4) and butt (Chapter 5) joint configurations. The volume continues with discussions of test methods for strength and constitutive properties (Chapter 6), fracture (Chapter 7), and peel (Chapter 8). Chapter 9 covers coatings, the case of adhesion to a single substrate, and Chapter 10 addresses elastomeric adhesives such as sealants. The role of mechanics in determining the locus of failure in bonded joints is discussed (Chapter ll), followed by a chapter on rheology relevant to adhesives and sealants (Chapter 12). Pressure sensitive adhesive performance (Chapter 13), the principles of tack and tack measurements (Chapter 14), and contact mechanics relevant to wetting and surface energy measurements (Chapter 15) are then covered. The volume concludes with sections on fibermatrix bonding and reinforcement (Chapter 16), durability considerations for adhesive bonds (Chapter 17), ultrasonic non-destructive evaluation of adhesive bonds (Chapter 18), and design of adhesive bonds from a strength perspective (Chapter 19).

The references cited in the chapters herein represent only a portion of the intense effort and contributions made by the mechanics community working in adhesion science and technology. Through compiling these important topics covered by the respective chapters, along with the surfaces and materials issues addressed in the companion volumes, the editors hope to address the need for a current and comprehensive series of books that provides an overview of this broad and interdisciplinary field. As the scientific and engineering community comes to a better understanding of the mechanics, surface, and materials issues, improved models of representing complex bonded systems will develop. Technical challenges remain for understanding how properties of the adhesive and adherends affect the performance and durability of bonded joints and structures, how designers can reliably utilize adhesive bonds in a variety of service conditions, and how mechanics’ insights can efficiently be translated into improving surfaces and adhesives. One can only wonder what new science will be developed as we move into the nanomechanics world, where the applicability of continuum mechanics becomes questionable as atomic scales are approached.

The editors of this volume would like to express sincere appreciation to each of the authors for their invaluable contributions to this volume. Their collective expertise represents many years of industrial and academic experience in the field of adhesion science and technology, and we are very grateful for the time and effort they have devoted to the task. We would also like to thank the employers of each of the contributors for allowing them to take on the added responsibilities associated with this volume. We would like to thank Mrs. Shelia L. Collins for her diligence in contacting authors, maintaining files, and assembling materials prior to publication. Assistance from the Engineering Science and Mechanics Department and Center for Adhesive and Sealant Science at Virginia Tech is specifically acknowledged. Finally, we would like to thank our wives for their patience as we compiled and edited the volume.
