Title

Laminated Architectural Glass Subjected to Blast, Impact Loading

Abstract

A model to analyze the failure prediction for a laminated architectural glass subjected to blast and impact loading was developed. The glass piles were modeled as a linear material for which the usual isotropic linear elastic material constitutive relations. Two performance modes can occur when LAG is exposed to dynamic loads on the outer glass, and in the first performance the outer glass ply can be fractured while the inner glass ply. In the case of large soft missile impact on glass, the Hertzian core cracking is not obvious, because the contact between a soft missile and glass is different from a hard missile and glass.
