The stress interference effects adhesively bonded scarf and butt joints were investigated when an additional adhesive layer was incorporated in overall joint design. Finite element models were developed and analyzed to compare interfacial stress states and peak stresses on the double adhesive layer joints with those on the single adhesive layer joints with respect to the scarf angle, adhesive layer separation (ALS) and adhesive modulus. This comparison was done in terms of stress ratio calculated as a ratio of interfacial peak stress on double adhesive layer joint to that an single adhesive layer joint. The tensile task results were correlated with the finite element analysis (FEA) results in terms of load ratio calculated as a ratio of failure load on single adhesive layer joint to that on double adhesive layer joint. Six scarf angles (15°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 75° and 90°), three ALS and adhesives were analyzed for this study.
