Abstract

A series of tensile tests were carried out on fillet welded lap joints assisted with bonding for investigating the static tensile strength characteristics of the joints from the viewpoints of stress reduction effect around the welded part due to bonding. It was confirmed that the mechanical properties of epoxy resin bonding used in this study were not deteriorated by heating less than 150 degrees Celsius. When the fillet welded lap joints with bonding were assembled, the bond layer in 20 mm from the weld toe was subjected to heating over 150 degrees Celsius. In other words, the mechanical properties in that region were deteriorated. The strengths of elastic limit of specimens with welding and bonding were higher than those of specimens with only welding by from 60 to 100 MPa. The ultimate tensile strengths of them were almost the same because they were broken at the base plate. The strains around the weld toe and the root of specimens with welding and bonding were smaller than those of specimens with welding by around 13 % in elastic region. The strengths of specimens with only bonding were 170 MPa, which could be explained by a theory of elastic stress distribution. Even if the bond layer in 20 mm from weld toe of the specimens with welding and bonding was thermally damaged, the possibility was confirmed that the residual bond layer had around 100 MPa in strength. It could be concluded that the strength of the residual bonding assisted to decrease the stress around the welded part of the specimens with welding and bonding.
