Description

The integrity of bonded structures is of paramount importance in the safe and reliable operation of aircraft equipment. Fuselages, helicopter rotor blades and nose cones are multilayered composite structures bonded together. The operational readiness and security of these units depend to a large extent on the integrity of the interfacial bonds. Adhesive and cohesive strength studies do not appear promising because failure is really dominated by defects and not by some average physical properties of the adhesive and the interface [1].
