The use of adhesive bonding in transport is, to some extent, limited due to insufficiently reliable NDT techniques. We discuss various advantages and disadvantages of adhesive structures and highlight where NDT, and particularly acoustics, could alleviate the present, common, suspicion of glued structures.
