Abstract:

This paper will present the results of 3-D finite element analyses of single lap adhesive joints between magnesium and three other automotive materials, namely steel, aluminum and SRIM composites. The modulus of magnesium is lower than that of either steel or aluminum, but is higher than that of SRIM. Thus, this study aims at determining the effect of the difference in substrate modulus on the deformation, stress and strain distributions and maximum stresses in adhesive joints of magnesium with the other three materials. In addition, the effect of adhesive modulus is also explored.
