The adhesive bonding technology can be used in combination with other traditional joining methods, such as mechanical fastening techniques (e.g. rivets or bolts) or welding techniques, generating a hybrid joint. Hybrid adhesive joints are designed to exploit the advantages of the different techniques and, if possible, overcome their drawbacks. This study focuses on the interference fitted/adhesive bonded joining technique. This method consists in two cylindrical components coupled together by inserting one into the other, after having placed an adhesive on the mating surfaces.
