One of the most efficient methods of improving the strength of adhesive bonds is the bi-adhesive technique. The main aim of the current study is to investigate the fatigue life of bi-adhesive joints under cyclic impact loads based on the J-N (impact energy vs. fatigue life) methodology. To achieve this, single lap joints were subjected to cyclic low energy impacts. The J-N curves were constructed using the experimental data considering Basquin's equation. According to the results, the durability of the joints against impact fatigue loads can be improved significantly (up to 17 times higher for the tested joints) using the bi-adhesive technique. The results also showed that the impact fatigue life is very sensitive to the length ratio of the ductile to the brittle adhesives in bi-adhesive joints. It was found that the total absorbed energy of the joints increases significantly by the reduction of the impact energy.
