Abstract: An adhesively bonded single lap joint was used to study the effects of coupon thickness, bondline thickness, surface preparation, presence of an overflow fillet, and adhesive type. Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science high school and middle school students prepared 960 single-lap-joint samples with US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) technicians fabricating an additional 245 controls. Workflow protocol was orchestrated using ARL's Materials Selection and Analysis Tool relational database. Moreover, the enhanced pedigree and integrity enabled by centering workflow on a robust relational database allow for supplemental release of all raw and analyzed experimental data, along with associated metadata, in downloadable format that is included with this report.
