Abstract / Description of output

This paper presents a general closed form solution for the elastic shear and peel stresses in an adhesive layer that bonds a strengthening plate to a beam. The solution takes into account initial strains in the plate, external beam loadings, temperature effects, and forces applied to the end of the plate. Results of some typical load cases are presented in order to illustrate the significance of the stresses.
