Product Description

Adhesive technology may not be familiar to many structural engineers as adhesives have been used mostly in the aerospace and automotive industries. There are ways in which these techniques can be applied in the construction industry.

This guide introduces structural engineers, with little or no knowledge of adhesives and the behaviour of adhesive joints, to the range of applications. It will help the engineer carry out preliminary designs and prepare outline specifications.
The publication is also of use to manufacturers, suppliers and contractors, and directs readers to other sources of more detailed information. Coverage is confined to those adhesives with a polymetric matrix used in structural applications Cementitious materials are not covered.

The guide is concerned mainly with structural and semi-structural adhesive connections, where the bonded joint carries all or part of the load. The emphasis is on connections between structural elements, rather than where adhesives are used as an integral part of the structure, such as glued laminated timber (glulam) or plywood.
