Adhesively bonded lap joints are used increasingly in the spacecraft and aerospace application to join structural component of metallic material. The influence of the parameter like upper, mid and lower bond line has been investigated. A two dimensional finite element model (FEM) based on plane strain assumption including the geometrical nonlinear analysis was utilized to investigate the joint stiffness and stress distribution. An aluminum adherends bonded with toughened araldite adhesive. The numerical results show beneficial effects of the adhesive which decrease the stress concentration at the ends of the lap Length.
