Is it possible to join carbon fiber made structure with mild steel made structure through adhesive-hemming joint?

It is definitely possible, there are just a lot of variables to consider when deciding if it is right for the application. The immediate problem is this would make it challenging/unrealistic to remove and repair either part individually. If this is not a problem, I would probably start looking at weaving/looping the carbon fiber around the mild steel structure. That way you have the structural strength of the carbon fiber holding them together, not just the adhesive.

I don't know this for sure, but it may not be ideal to adhere something to the surface of the carbon fiber, because it may be more likely to  just pull the lamination apart before completely structurally failing. If anyone has experience with this I would love to hear more.
