In this paper, the mechanical behavior of the scarf lap joints (SLJs) bonded with adhesive (Vinylester Atlac 580) under a tensile load was analyzed. The effects of scarf angle at the interface strain distributions of SLJs were examined. The stress analyses were performed via three dimensional Finite Element Method (3D-FEM). The 3D-FEM code employed was Ansys (12.0). Experimental results were compared with the 3D-FEM results and were found quite reasonable. The results indicated that the maximum values of the normalized epsilon(x) strain values were determined at 0 = 60 degrees in all joints.
