In this research project, strength and behaviour of bonded joints is investigated under various loading and geometrical conditions. The interns will prepare specimen in accordance with industry guidelines, test the specimen and record data. Interns will study and investigate the joint behavior under several different scenarios, will model material behavior from the test data. This will enable making reliable prediction of joint performance under different application-specific conditions, using finite element modeling and analysis. The result of this study will enable automakers to use adhesively bonded joints instead of spot welds, thus benefiting from the cost savings.
