Abstract : A large part of the project concerned with development of NDE methods for adhesive bonds involves making various measurements on adhesively bonded joints. In order to insure uniformity in the preparation and characteristics of the samples used in these tests, this task was initiated to supply a uniform grade of specimen to everyone in the project. Special precautions were taken to develop the techniques by which the cohesive and the adhesive strengths could be varied separately.
