The Strength of Weathered Window Glass Using Surface Characteristics
(Texas Tech University, 1981-08)
The general objective of the research is to evaluate tie strength of glass plates that have been in service as windows for several (>15) years. Included in this general objective are the use of analytical techniques to ...
Comparison of Window Glass Sample Strength Estimates: Full Scale Versus Concentric Rings
...The principal objective of this research is to test the hypothesis that surface strength parameters, m and k, are independent of glass plate geometry. Surface strength parameters obtained from full scale tests ...
Experimental Study of Glass Plate Strength at Rapid Loading Rates
The time dependent nature of the strength of glass plates, commonly referred to as "static fatigue," is modeled by an equation involving an exponent "n" which is a material property relating to the rate of loading. Except ...
Investigation of the Mechanics of Windborne Missile Impact on Window Glass
Engineers have recognized that failure of the building envelope is one mechanism that can lead to severe damage of structures during windstorms. The building envelope consists of the roof, doorways, windows, and ...
