A new paradigm in functionally graded adhesives
November 10-14, 2019
To fully realize the benefits of advanced composites, mechanical fasteners must be supplanted by more efficient technologies such as adhesive bonding. The promise of functionally graded adhesives to provide particularly high levels of performance in this context has been recognized for decades, but a means of generating stable, high performance adhesive joints with arbitrary gradations in mechanical properties has proved elusive.
