In this study, the mechanical behavior of composite pipes joined with embedded and non-embedded adhesive layers is investigated. Due to their high resistance, corrosion resistance, repair and lightness, composite materials have been used in industry increasingly. In general, composite pipes are used for the transport of pressurized liquids and gases. Joining processes are performed using many different methods. This study is intended to facilitate the joining process of composite pipes and to increase their applicability. In this study, the development of various bonding methods were investigated using composite pipes and double reinforced structural adhesives. Likewise stress behavior was analyzed. Generally, models with patch and patch quality are found in the literature.In this study by contrast, joining operations will be made easier by means of composite pipe joining models designed using glue without a patch. As a result, time and extra cost savings can be achieved.
