This paper describes an analysis of the influence of the adherends of different thicknesses and dissimilar materials on the stress distributiton of single lap joints rigidly supported at the joint edges under tensile load. Stress distributions and effects of Young's moduli of adherends and adherends thicknesses were investigated analytically and experimentally. Maximum shear normal stresses occur at the edge where the adhesive joints the adherend of lower inplane stiffiness. Experiments concerning the strains of adherends were performed. The analytical results were consistent with the FEM results and experimental results.
