The mechanical behavior of metallic fiber reinforced adhesively bonded Single Lap Joints (SLJ) under dynamic loading has been studied. The effect of different fiber spacing along the joint width on the strength of SLJs was investigated experimentally. The experimental tests were conducted on non-reinforced and reinforced adhesives joints fabricated using Araldite 2015 adhesive. The experimental results indicated that introducing the metallic fibers in the adhesive layer improved the shear strength of SLJs. This improvement was observed to be maximum under higher loading rates. Additionally, the improvements were found to be de-pendent on the spacing between the metal macrofibers for which lower fiber distancing result-ed in higher failure load improvements.
