The effects of joint geometry on the engineering properties of structural silicone sealants are discussed. In particular, the relationship between the joint cross-sectional area at various aspect ratios commonly used in practice (ratio of sealant bite to glueline thickness) of the joint and its mechanical behaviour is examined. Using the principles of the William-Landel-Ferry (WLF) superimposition technique, ...
