An experimental procedure and test setup is used for investigating effect of using nanoparticle additives to the adhesive on the load transfer capacity (LTC) of bonded magnesium (Mg)-steel (St) single lap joints (SLJ). Investigated variables include the nano-powder material (Alumina vs. Silica), particulate size (20 nm vs. 80 nm), and concentration in the adhesive (2.5% wt. vs 5.0 % wt.). Two different levels of surface roughness on the bonded area are used; namely, sanding the bond area with G60 or G180 sand paper. Test data and SEM failure mode analysis are provided.
