Abstract

A finite element method for analyzing the behavior of structures which are patched with a bonded overlay of composite material is described. The analysis includes the separate responses of the structure, composite and adhesive and allows for the variation of the transverse shear stresses through the thickness of the patch, adhesive, and structure. As an illustrative example the repair of a cracked sheet is considered.
