The interface stress distributions and the stress distributions around fillers in adhesive butt joints including fillers under static tensile loading are analyzed using Finite Element Method (FEM). The effects of stiffness, size and filling rate of fillers on the interfaces stress distributions and the stress distribution around the fillers are examined in the FEM calculations. It is seen that the maximum value of the stress around the edge of the adhesive interface decreases as the filling rate increases, while the stress around the fillers increases. The result shows that the joint strength increases more than that of the joints without fillers when the filling rate is lower (around 10 weight %). In addition, it is observed that the joint strength decreases at high filling rate. For verification of the FEM calculations, experiments were carried out to measure the joint strength. The analytical results are in a fairly good agreement with the experimental results.
