Abstract: In this study, a T-peel joint test is used to evaluate the resistance of bonded and weld-bonded joints to a peeling load. Bonded and weld-bonded peel joints have poor strength with respect to peeling loading. In the current study, experimental methods are proposed to study the strength enhancement by introducing a single overlap support for a T-peel joint. The results indicate that the peel strength enhancement increases significantly with the introduction of a single overlap support. Also, the strength enhancement further increases with increases in the overlap support length.

Keywords: peel joint; bonded joint; weld-bonded joint; peel strength.
