Design Optimization using Adhesive Bonding

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Design Optimization

Research team: John Parmigiani

Potential benefit to all industrial companies using or considering the use of adhesives in products. Insufficient adhesive properties increase product cost due to additional testing or over designing adhesive joints. Accurate adhesive properties will reduce testing time and cost, allow for better modelling of adhesive joints, and reduce waste from over-designed joints.
