Abstract

...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 and

from concentric rings tests performed on the four samples are compared by using the parameters to predict glass plate strengths. If the hypothesis is valid, strengths obtained from the full scale tests and concentric rings tests for a common glass plate geometry will be similar, if not the same. While the precise values of surface strength parameters estimated from each methods will not be identical, resulting strength characterizations of common plate sizes should compare favorably....
