This volume documents the proceedings of the SecondInternational Symposium onAdhesive Joints: Formation,Characteristics and Testing held in Newark, NJ, May 22-24, 2000. Sincethe first symposium, held in 1982, there had been tremendous researchactivity dealing with many aspects of adhesive joints.
This volume contains a total of 21 papers, which were all properly peerreviewed, revised and edited before inclusion. Therefore, this book isnot merely a collection of unreviewed manuscripts, but rather representsinformation which has passed peer scrutiny. Furthermore, the authorswere asked to update their manuscripts, so the information contained inthis book should be current and fresh.
The book is divided into three parts: 1) General Papers; 2) Evaluation,Analysis and Testing; and 3) Durability Aspects. The topics coveredinclude: molecular brush concepts in enhancing strength of adhesivejoints; factors affecting performance of adhesive joints; substratepreparation and modification; interfacial/interphasial aspects;determination of locus of failure; analysis and evaluation of adhesivejoints using various techniques; testing of adhesive joints; stressanalysis; application of fracture mechanics; durability aspects;accelerated environmental degradation of adhesive joints; solventuptake; and adhesives with special characteristics.
This volume represents a commentary on the current R&D activity in thisarena and it should be of great value and interest to anyone interestedin adhesive bonding/adhesive joints. Furthermore, this volume containsa number of excellent review/overview articles, which should be ofparticular value.
