Summary

As one of the most typical test methods to determine the shear strength of joints, the effect of the joint shape on the tensile strength of lap jointed ceramic composite bonded by ARCJoinT™ was examined by using finite element method with the interface element. Also, the influence of the mechanical properties of the interface element on the tensile strength was analyzed. From the effects of the surface energy and the bonding and shear strength of interface element on the tensile strength, it was found that the tensile strength of beveled lap joint was mainly governed by the surface energy at the interface and almost independent on the bonding and the shear strength. As the results of the joint shape effect, it was revealed that the joint shape slightly affected the tensile strength and this influence was caused by the order of singularity in the stress field at the edge of joint. Furthermore, it was considered that the shear strength measured by the tensile test of lap joint might be different from that obtained by the asymmetrical four point bending test of the butt jointed specimen.
