In this study, the effect of scarf angle on tensile strength of an epoxy adhesive was investigated bothexperimentally and numerically. Tensile tests were carried out using Scarf Lap Joints (SLJs). Commer-cially available epoxy (Atlac 580) was used as adhesive and fiber reinforced epoxy/glass (Hgw 2372Grade G10 EP GC 203) was used as adherends. The stress analyses were performed using a three-dimensional Finite Element Method (FEM). The FEM analyses were executed with Ansys (V.14.0.1).Experimental results were compared with the FEM results and found quite reasonable. The results haveindicated that when overlap angle increases, the failure load values also decrease in all joints.
