Abstract: Axisymmetric adhesive joints are increasingly used as alternative means of structural joining particularly in highly loaded powertrain components. The paper deals with the use of high strength single component adhesives which cure anaerobically, and the strength evaluation of joints produced using appropriate industrial assembly techniques. The paper provides relevant information on static and fatigue strength properties and gives through stress analysis a better understanding of the factors controlling joint strength when using interference fit joint assemblies.
Keywords: anaerobic adhesives; axisymmetric joints; cylindrical fit; fatigue; interference; joint strength; adhesive joints; bonding; structural joining; powertrain components; stress analysis.
