In this paper, some preliminary analysis techniques are presented to help incorporate the effects of the adherend surface topography as a discrete entity in the adhesive joint composite. We believe that topographies obtained on treated surfaces can be approximated by a collection of single and/or multiple scarf, lap, or butt sections, which can be in stepped and/or straight configurations. Consequently, examples of multi-stepped double scarf joints with void, and disbond effects are illustrated to shed more light into the behavior of joints, which are not fully wetted, and contain void and/or disbond sections as a result.
