Data in manuscript titled 'Fracture mechanism of adhesive single-lap joints with composite adherends under quasi-static tension'
The research is aimed to understanding of the fracture mechanism of Single-lap joints (SLJs) with composite adherends. The main findings of the research are as follow. Fracture surface of SLJs are observed in detail with scanning electron microscope. Crack initiation of both types of SLJs are captured by high-speed camera. Fracture process of SLJs are demonstrated based on experimental results. Sand paper treatment shows an effect on the failure modes of SLJs. CZM with experimentally obtained parameters predicts the failure modes and failure loads well. The raw data include the results of tensile test and short beam shear test of a CFRP as well as the tensile test results of 4 types of SLJs. The processed data are derived from the raw data, mainly in the form of figure.
