This short and focused book provides a description of the fundamentals of adhesive bonding within the field of aerospace applications, aimed at engineering master degree students and all those who wish to learn more about this technology. It highlights the foundations behind the use of adhesive bonding, always within the context of aeronautical cases of use. The book is written to be easily accessible to those with limited knowledge in the field and includes many illustrations to facilitate the comprehension of the concepts exposed. The work is divided into nine chapters, including theory of adhesion, surface preparation, adhesive formulations, joint manufacturing processes, quality control, repair and durability.
