Abstract: When a bar having one end bonded to a rigid support with foam-adhesive is loaded the high peeling stresses at the bonded edge foster edge delamination along the interface of bonding. Upon inspection by double exposure holography, with an incremental point load applied at the free end of the bar between exposures, the indistinct fringe perturbation and the unknown resilience of the foam-adhesive (quantified by its foundation modulus) impede unambiguous evaluation of the condition of adhesion. This paper describes a simple method for rapid detection and assessment of artificially created edge delamination in such bar structures. The theoretical analysis elucidates the suitability of modelling the bar as partially clamped, and having an equivalent slope at its support related to the foundation modulus. Two dimensionless parameters are defined, which have between them a linear relationship for a nondelaminated bonding but a nonlinear relationship for a delaminated one. Finally, a simple iterative procedure is described for estimating the delaminated length without having to predetermine the elasticity of the support.
