Advances in Structural Adhesive Bonding
Adhesive bonding is increasingly regarded as a cost effective and effectual way to join mechanical structures. This book reviews recent improvements in adhesive bonding and their wide-ranging potential in structural engineering. Part one discusses methods for selecting the correct adhesive. The second set of chapters discusses the various types of adherents. A third set of chapters analyses methods and techniques for joint design. The final chapters give useful and practical insight into the problems and solutions of adhesive bonding in a variety of hostile environments such as chemical, wet, and extreme temperatures.
