Abstract

Laminated glass is used in several engineering and architecture applications to enhance their structural integrity. The mechanical behaviour after glass fracture, whose main aspect is a re-sidual stiffness, determines their utility. A theoretical model to predict the loading ca-pacity of a laminated glass flexural beam is proposed. The beam is subjected to four-point bending. A fracture approach which takes into account imperfections in glass plies and crack growth is employed.
