In this study, stress behavior of double strap joints under tensile load experimentally investigated. For reinforcing the joint, the strap plates were embedded in the main adherend. Dewveld 530 was used as adhesive material and glass fiber reinforced epoxy adhesive as adherend for experiments. Experiments were carried out for different adherend thicknesses, embedded heights, and overlap lengths. Results showed that increasing the height of the embedded cover plate resulted in decreased stress values in the adhesive layer. The most effective parameter was overlap length to on the strength of specimens.
