In this study; experimental failure analysis was investigated on adhesively single-lap joints produced using adhesives reinforced with uni-directional glass fibers. Epoxy adhesive impregnated fiber were used to join composite plates with single-lap joints. It is aimed to strengthen the joint by using fiber layers impregnated with adhesive between the two composite plates. The failure loads of the joints obtained with reinforced adhesives were compared with the failure loads of the joints attached to the non-reinforced adhesive. Also, 0o, 15o 30o and 45ofiber reinforcement angles were used to investigate the effect of fiber reinforcement angle. As a result of the experimental study, it was determined that reinforcing the adhesives can increase the damage loads by up to 7%.
