ASTM D5656 covers the preparation and testing of thick-adherend lap-shear samples for the determination of the stress-strain behavior of adhesives. ASTM D5656 can be used to determine the stress strain properties of an adhesive in shear and to establish the proportional-limit of the stress-stain relationship. This data may be useful for the design and analysis of adhesively bonded joints.
