Group Notes on Background Literature

Adhesive Bonding - Judy

Adhesive Bonding Review


[From Adam]
  • Valuable coverage of different types of joining in Al alloys
  • Strong comparisons made between advantages and disadvantages in adhesive bonding
  • Could use a section on how the adhesive bonding/curing process is carried out
  • More processing parameters/boundary conditions could be useful
