In this study, the carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) specimens bonded adhesively in joggled lap configuration are tested for their bonding characteristics. The acoustic emission (AE) technique is used as a characterizing tool and peak amplitude is taken as the primary acoustic descriptor. The peak amplitude distributed in the time domain of the test is clustered by using an unsupervised pattern recognition algorithm (k-means++ algorithm) to differentiate the different damage modes. Furthermore, the waveforms of the acoustic signals recorded were studied using wavelet packet transform (WPT). The frequency band associated with each damage mode is identified using the wavelet packet transform. It is identified that the dominant damage mode responsible for failure is the interfacial debonding and interlaminar crack growth through the thickness of the adhesive layer. Overall, the acoustic emission technique proved to be a powerful tool in evaluating the bonding characteristics of the tested CFRP joggled lap specimens.
