Abstract: The technique of limit analysis is applied to determine upper and lower bounds for the tensile strength of a butt joint consisting of a thin layer of adhesive joining the parallel flats of two rigid adherends. The adhesive is assumed to be an elastic-perfectly plastic material which yields when the maximum shear stress reaches a critical value. The methods used apply to any joint with a convex area of cross-section. Particular application is made to joints whose cross-sections are circular, rectangular, or a polygon circumscribed about a circle.
