Effect of Delamination on the Strength of Laminated Glass Plate Structures

Laminated glass which consists of two glass sheets connected to each other with PVB interlayer is used in many engineering applications for years. Despite the long history of the use of laminated glass in buildings there are serious problems about delamination of laminated glass units. This paper provides information about delamination issues of laminated glass plate structures. Delamination of laminated glass unit may be due to the thinning of PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral) interlayer or the folds which occur during the manufacturing process. Laminated glass behaves in a complex manner due to the effect of geometry that undergoes large deflection even under their own weight and the order difference between the elastic modulus of glass and interlayer. Because of the mentioned reasons large deflection analysis has to be performed in the determination of the effect of delamination on the strength of laminated glasses.

Effect of support conditions on the vibration of laminated composite beams
Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü (SAGE Publications, 2007-09-01)
Laminated glass plate or beam used in the building industry is an architectural unit of the building formed by two or more thin glass plates or beams bonded together by an interlayer PVB (polyvinyl butyral). The behavior of laminated glass beams is complicated because the different materials have different elastic modulus. Laminated glass is very thin and can easily undergo large displacements, therefore, the equilibrium equations governing their behavior should be based on large deflection theory. In the p...
Analysis of laminated glass arches and cylindrical shells
Dural, Ebru; Aşık, Mehmet Zülfü; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
In this study, a laminated glass unit which consists of two glass sheets bonded together by PVB is analyzed as a curved beam and as a cylindrical shell. Laminated glass curved beams and shells are used in architecture, aerospace, automobile and aircraft industries. Curved beam and shell structures differ from straight structures because of their initial curvature. Because of mathematical complexity most of the studies are about linear behavior rather than nonlinear behavior of curved beam and shell units. T...
Effect of Support Width on Stress Resultants in Ring Beams Interacting with Silo Shells
Topkaya, Cem (2019-09-20)
Elevated cylindrical metal silos are often supported on a ring beam which rests on discrete column supports. The ring beam plays an important role in redistributing the majority of the discrete forces from the column supports into a more uniform stress state in the cylindrical wall, which is necessary to reduce the potential for buckling of the shell wall. Traditional design treatments for ring beams assumed that the ring is supported by knife‐edge supports and is under the action of a uniformly distributed...
Effects of Pulse-Reverse Currents on Nickel Deposited from Sulphamate Solutions
Çetinöz, Bilgehan; Erdoğan, Metehan; Aras, Mustafa Serdal; Karakaya, İshak (2017-05-29)
Electroplating is widely used in many fields for decorative and engineering purposes. Nickel is mostly used for engineering applications beacause of its enchanced mechanical properties such as low internal stress and high corrosion and erosion resistance. It was reported that the use of pulse or pulse reverse currents instead of direct current produced homogenous deposits of better surface finish [1,2]. Nickel sulphamate bath was used in this study to attain better mechanical properties, lower internal stre...
Effects of glass substrate coated by different-content buffer layer on the quality of poly-Si thin films
Karaman, Mehmet; ÖZMEN, ÖZGE TÜZÜN; Sedani, Salar Habibpur; Ozkol, Engin; Turan, Raşit (Wiley, 2016-12-01)
In this work, polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) thin films were fabricated by aluminum induced crystallization (AIC) technique. SiNx, deposited as a function of NH3/SiH4 ratio, and AZO (Al-doped ZnO) films on glass were used as a buffer layer between glass and Si film. The effect of buffer layer content on the crystallinity of poly-Si thin films was studied by Raman analysis which shows that fully crystallization without stress was achieved for all samples. Moreover, the preferred crystalline orientation an...
