dc.description.abstract <p>There are many benefits to be gained when using adhesives compared with the use of more traditional joining techniques. Amongst these advantages can be listed the ability to join dissimilar materials, the uniform distribution of load over the area of the joint avoiding stress concentrations, the improvement in aesthetics and, potentially, a lower-weight for the component or structure. However several factors have retarded the more widespread use of adhesives. These principally are (i) the detrimental effect of moisture on the joint strength and (ii) the lack of a suitable non-destructive testing technique for detecting strength loss due to environmental attack. It is the latter problem that the present work addresses. The focus of this work has been to examine the bonding of aluminium alloy to aluminium alloy, using an epoxy-based adhesive.</p>
