Effet des défauts d'adhésion sur la résistance mécanique des assemblages collés

Abstract : Structural adhesive bonding has known an increasing use in many fields like aeronautics, aerospace and automotive and other fields like construction and sports. This very advantageous technique allows the assembly of similar or different materials using an adhesive, the significant reduction in weight and a uniform distribution of loads on the assembly. Despite its advantages, the bonding still suffers from some disadvantages related to the existence of defects in the bonded joints. Among them, there are defects that are located at the interface glue / substrate as "kissing bond" or poor surface due to bad surface treatment, which remain undetectable or hardly detectable using non-destructive control techniques. Therefore, in order to take into account the existence of adhesion defects in bonded assemblies during the design phase, it is necessary to provide an analytical model capable of predicting crack propagation and estimate the criticality of a defect. In this thesis, an analytical model that predicts crack propagation and evaluates the effective strength of a bonded assembly containing adhesion defects has been developed. A defect usually has a complex geometry, and a generic study is difficult to achieve, which leads us to consider ideal defect geometries. The model was verified by experiments performed on DCB specimens. Numerical simulations using the cohesive zone method were also performed to more fully describe the decohesion process and to simulate the experimental tests. The last part of this work was devoted to the study of titanium alloy assembly containing patterns. Taking advantage of the collaboration with Safran and Alphanov, the substrates underwent a laser surface treatment leaving untreated areas. The purpose of this part was to check the proposed analytical model with more complex configurations.
