These paper deals with the development of new bonded joint modelling for crash application. A new testing device has been set up on Split Hopkinson bars in order to identify adhesive’s properties in assemblies for high strain rate and for different loading angles. These tests led to the development of a new cohesive element model used for solving nonlinear dynamic problems with an explicit integration time scheme. An example illustrates and justifies the development of such a cohesive element under dynamic loading by a good efficiency and a significant saving in calculation time.
