Drop testing applied to adhesive research in automotive structures
Abstract (Summary)The design and analysis of drop test to investigate the behaviour of adhesive joints in automotive structures is performed. The drop test is simulated by FE software. The specimen geometry is based on Volvo Car Corp. drop test standard.In the drop test machine, a general beam structure is supporting all the parts. The machine includes a lifting system. The test is applied to a pre designed specimen, which will provide the information about adhesive joint strength.
