A new double lap-shear sample geometry suppressing the use of arms and working in compression is introduced. This geometry is not only intended to control the thickness of the adhesive layers and obtain sharp edges, but also to limit to a considerable extent the occurrence of a peel stress. This test is analyzed through a modified shear-lag theory including(More)
The present work investigated the effects of physical aging on interfacial adhesion and internal stresses using single-fibre model composites. First, the stress state of the interface and its evolution upon aging were studied for the microbond geometry. This stress analysis was used with experiments to determine an intrinsic interfacial shear strength.(More)
This paper details the building of a finite element mesh tailored to the simulation of a complete nano-imprint lithography process. A novel approach to meshing of FE structures is devised, to address the issues specific to the NIL process: large aspect ratio and slip distance. It consists in generating a finely meshed structure as it should be after(More)
