The stress variations and stress distributions in scarf and stepped-lap adhesive joints of similar adherends under static and impact tensile loadings were analyzed in elastic range using three-dimensional finite element method. The impact loadings were applied to the lower adherend by dropping a weight. The stress distributions in scarf adhesive joints of similar adherends under static tensile loadings were also analyzed using FEM. The effects of Young’s modulus of the adherends, the adhesive thickness, and the angle of the adherends on the stress distributions at the interfaces between the adherends and the adhesive were examined under static loadings. The maximum value of σ1 decreased as young’s modulus of the adhesive increased in the stepped-lap adhesive joints under static loadings. However, the result of the scarf adhesive joints under static loadings was opposite to the above result. The value of σ1 became minimum when the scarf angle was 52°in the scarf adhesive joint. In addition, the experiments to measure the strain response and strain of joints subjected to impact and static tensile loadings were carried out using strain gauges. Fairly good agreements ware found between the numerical and the measured results.
