Title: Simulation of Bonded Joints Failure using Progressive Mixed-Mode Damage Models
Issue Date: 2013
Abstract: In the most recent years, structural applications of bonded joints haveincreased remarkably owing to their several advantages relative to otherjoining methods. As a consequence, the development of improved modelsto provide design effi ciency and, at the same time, increase the confi denceof designers acquires special relevancy. Recent developments consideringcohesive and continuum mixed-mode damage models have demonstratedthat these methods are able to deal with several details inherent tomechanical behaviour of bonded joints. Both methods allow simulationof damage initiation and propagation by combining classical strength ofmaterials approaches with fracture mechanics concepts.In this work, several different mixed-mode cohesive laws adapted todifferent types of adhesives mechanical behaviour are presented and discussed.Effectively, while mechanical behaviour of brittle or moderately ductileadhesives is well simulated by means of the simple bilinear cohesivelaw, adhesives with pronounced ductile behaviour require more sophisticatedcohesive laws. The aspects regarding determination of some cohesiveparameters are also given special attention in the present paper. A continuummixed-mode damage model is also presented using the bilinear softeningcohesive law. This model is advantageous since properties degradation takesplace inside solid elements used to simulate the adhesive, which allows theevaluation of specifi c issues like the infl uence of asymmetric propagationon joint mechanical behaviour in a more realistic manner. Important conclusionsabout advantages and drawbacks of both methodologies are drawn.
