Novel Studies on Thermo-Mechanical Properties of Structural Glass with and without Lamination

M. Nagamadhu, S.B. Kivade

Abstract: The attractiveness of glass is something that occupied the world market with a unique claim. It has many applications that go beyond the provision of visual aesthetics, which includes a view of the inside and out. Due to extreme levels of clarity, structural glazing may be so transparent that it may go unnoticed by design or make a strong visual impact such as the focal point of a building. This paper focused on structural glass with various laminated/laminated conditions that were used to investigate the Dynamic Mechanical Properties. The storage modulus (G'), loss modulus (G'') and damping factor (tan delta) were determined at various levels, ranging from room temperature to elevated temperatures (250 °C) to understand the behavior of glass structure with and without laminated glass over a range of temperatures. The G' & G'' were tested to understand the effect of bonding, fracture behavior between the pure glass and laminated glass to observe the response with respect to temperature. Results are found that G' and G'' improve over a range of temperatures for laminated glass with enlightening fracture behavior. Laminated glass also has a major influence on the damping factor, but it also depends on the laminated thickness and materials. Thermo-Mechanical Properties of laminated glass are more improved, without affecting the transferability of glass.
