Abstract: The goals of this research are to communicate the challenges of adhesive bonding for Army applications, present empirical correlations between relatively simple quasi-static coupon level testing and observed ballistic damage modes, present academic challenges that must be overcome, and finally to outline a course for minimal preliminary qualification standards that must be fulfilled for any adhesive to be considered for potential Army ground vehicle applications that encourage novel research and development into Army unique property regions.
