Advances in Adhesive Joining of Structural Components Focus of New Book from SAE International
Modern adhesives, surface preparation and control methods, bonding technologies, and testing help revitalize assembling technique, expected to assume an increasingly important role in aerospace.
Adhesive joining of structural components will assume an increasingly important role in designing and manufacturing lightweight structures for aerospace platforms. The latest book from SAE International , Adhesive Joining of Structural Components: New Insights and Technologies explores recent advancements in adhesive bonding, used in the manufacture of primary aircraft fuselage and wing structures since 1945.
By a proper design, adhesive bonding often helps in designing structures mechanically equivalent to or even stronger than conventional assemblies.
Adhesive Joining of Structural Components: New Insights and Technologies – edited by Dr. Alessandro Pegoretti, professor of materials science and technology at the University of Trento, Italy – introduces recent progress in adhesive joining of structural components. Advancements in adhesives, methods for surface preparation and control, bonding technologies, and non-destructive testing and modelling of failure mechanisms will help revitalize this relatively mature assembling technique.
The chapters, seminal SAE International technical papers, cover the most recent advances in adhesive materials, surface preparation and controls, innovative bonding technologies, hybrid bonded/bolted joints, and non-destructive testing and failure modelling of adhesively bonded joints.
Adhesive Joining of Structural Components: New Insights and Technologies is being touted as a must-read resource for those interested in the field of adhesive joining of structural components.
