Increased knowledge of analysis and strength prediction possibilities of bonded joints

FiReCo have performed work in the BONDSHIP project related to design and analysis of bonded joints. The work carried out in cooperation with the project partners has documented possible applications for adhesive bonding in ship structures.

The possibilities and limitations of different adhesive types with respect to structural strength have been verified by modelling and by testing. Different modelling techniques have been investigated, and the limitations of simplified models is determined and validated by direct analyses and complex material models.

FiReCo has extensive knowledge and experience in analysis of complex composite structures and adhesive bonded joints and laminated joints in such structures. In combination with the existing expertise, the results and techniques investigated in the Bondship project will contribute to new solutions to the benefit of our future customers.
