The present work aimed at predicting the strength of weld-bonded joints. For comparison purposes, adhesive-bonded and resistance spot-welded joints were also included in this study. The present work demonstrated that, the major principal stress...
The aim of the present work is to study the most influential parameters governing the strength of weld-bonded joints. The thickness and elastic modulus of adhesive, the stress concentration factor and the adherent materials, were all considered and...
The present work aimed at investigating the effect of thickness dissimilarity on the peel and shear strength of spot-welded dissimilar thickness joints. Finite element analysis was used throughout the present work. The present work showed that...
The present work aimed at predicting the strength of weld-bonded joints having square or spew fillet adhesive layer. For comparison purposes, adhesive bonded and resistance spot-welded joints were also included in this study. The present work...
The weld-bonding process is essentially the spot-resistance welding of parts that subsequently have their overlapping areas adhesive-bonded. Two distinct techniques are normally used for manufacturing weld-bonded structures namely; weld through and...
The objective of the present work is to assess factors that influence thermo-mechanical stresses developed in adhesively bonded tools. Plain and filled adhesives, dry cutting and cutting with coolant, and the effectiveness of bond line thickness...
A wide range of materials may be used in manufacturing tibia trays of artificial knee replacements. The Young's modulus of the prosthesis is a critical design variable, since it largely determines how the load is transferred, via the cement to the...
Cold-roll-forming (CRF) is an important sheet metal forming process. However, product design procedures, in terms of rolls design and rolls pass schedule, remains more an art than science. Finite-element (FE) computer simulation can be used to...
