Scaling up SentryGlas-laminated reinforced glass beams

abstract
At TU Delft, SentryGlas (SG) laminated glass beams with a metal reinforcement section laminated at the tensile edge of the beam, have been developed. Current study focuses on the effect of beam size on the post-breakage strength of the beams. To do so, bending tests have been performed on small 1.5 m relatively large 3.2 m beam specimens. To simultaneously investigate their lateral stability at the post-breakage stage, the large beams have been tested in a lateral buckling test setup. The test results demontrated a slight reduction in post-breakage strength level of the large beams compared to the small beams. It is therefore concluded that the size effect on the post-breakage performance is limited. Furthermore, the tests showed that global lateral buckling only occurs to a limited extent at the post-breakage stage. It is therefore concluded that lateral buckling is not crucial for the safety performance of the beams.
