A proposed damage model is used for investigating the deformation and interfacial failure behavior of an adhesively bonded single-lap thick joint made of S2 glass/SC-15 epoxy resin composite material. The bonding material is 3M Scotch-Weld Epoxy Adhesive DP405 Black. Continuum damage mechanics models are used to describe the damage initiation and final failure at or near the interface. The effect of adhesive overlap length, thickness, and plasticity on the interfacial shear and normal stresses is studied. Experimental and analytical data are used to validate the proposed damage models.
