Abstract : Satisfactory performance of adhesive-bonded wood joints results from the application of sound engineering principles and a knowledge of the mechanical behavior of the materials involved. The report describes techniques for measuring the creep of adhesives in free film form when dead loaded in tension. Creep measurements, made on selected adhesives, illustrated that adhesives differ widely in their ability to deform elastically and plastically under load. Better joint design for specific end uses can result upon considering the creep behavior of the adhesives employed. (Author)
