%X This paper discusses effects of adhesive thickness,
overlap length and material combinations on the single-lap
joints strength from the point of singular stress fields. A useful
method calculating the ratio of intensity of singular stress is
proposed using FEM for different adhesive thickness and
overlap length. It is found that the intensity of singular stress
increases with increasing adhesive thickness, and decreases
with increasing overlap length. The increment and decrement
are different depending on material combinations between
adhesive and adherent.
