Abstract

Dynamic photoelasticity in conjunction with linear elastic fracture mechanics was utilized to study the dynamic behavior of imperfectly bonded single lap joints. Transient phenomena of propagation, reflection and diffraction of explosively generated plane elastic stress field disturbances about the tips of a crack located at the interface between the two adherends are investigated in detail. Fracture mechanics aspects of dynamic initiation under stress wave loading in similar and dissimilar lap joints are discussed. © 1981 Springer-Verlag.
