Experimental and Numerical Investigation of the Bending Strength of Glass

G. Castori & E. Speranzini
Annealed glass has a high compression resistance but it is fragile and its tensile strength is low due to the random distribution of surface flaws and impurities, which induce cracks without prior warning and each crack is regarded as a failure. This phenomenon is dependent on surface micro-defects in the glass due to inclusions within the glass or to scratches caused by normal use and by the shaping process. Classical four point bending tests are...
