The accurate representation of the 3D stress fields at the bonded areas of adhesive joints is essential for their design and strength evaluation. In the present study, higher-order beam models developed in the framework of the Carrera Unified Formulation are employed to reduce the complexity and computational cost of numerical simulations on adhesive joints. The different components of the adhesive joint, i.e. adherends and adhesive, are modeled as beams with independent kinematics based on the Hierarchical Legendre Expansion (HLE). HLE models make use of a hierarchical polynomial expansion over the cross-section of the beam, thus allowing for the control of the accuracy of the stress solutions via the polynomial expansion. Recalling the Finite Element method, the beam axis is discretized by means of 1D elements. In this manner, generic geometries of the adhesive bonded joints can be studied. The proposed model is assessed through comparison against numerical and analytical references from the literature for single lap and double lap joints. Finally, a detailed 3D analysis is performed on the single lap joint problem, showing that the stress gradients along the adhesive are correctly and efficiently described if the proposed methodology is employed.
