The strength-deformation behavior of the adhesive layer formed from two-pack adhesives in bonded metal joints depends, among other things, on the curing conditions, the thickness of the adhesive layer and the previous stress history. This relationship is determined experimentally taking into account the damage which develops under tensile shear stress. In addition, a mechanical equation of state is examined and checked with regard to its ability to describe this relationship. It is shown that the equation effectively describes the shear stress-shear behavior of the adhesive layer of single-shear bonded metal lap joints in the tensile test as a function of the curing conditions and the adhesive layer thickness.
