Title
Influence of the load history on the edge strength of glass with arrised and ground edge finishing
Author
Abstract
The edge strength of glass is affected by the load history. To quantify this effect, 12 series of glass specimens were subjected to either linearly increased (reference value), constant or cyclic loading. For constant loading the experimental values could be accurately predicted by linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM). However, for cyclic loading the LEFM prediction was 48% more conservative than the test results. Furthermore, a comparison of the experimental results with the prediction method provided in the standards shows that for cyclic loading the number of cycles should be taken into account in the rules of the standards.
