Foam-adhesive bonding is very common in the mechanic and electronic industries. In this paper a metallic strip, frequently found in the computer industry, is analyzed by bonding it to a rigid support by means of a very thin foam-adhesive tape. The bonded strip is clamped to the support with the additional use of three screws and tightened with diverse torques and sequencing. The amount of the strip's warping caused by the screws is measured by using the reflection Moirè technique. Theoretical and numerical analyses are also attempted with the results being in excellent agreement with the experimental data. It is possible to use these results to designate a suitable tightening sequence which reduces warping of the strip.
