Influence of edge flaws on failure strength of glass

Author

Abstract
Glass is a challenging building material, among others due to the difficulty of defining its strength-related parameters. One of the main parameters influencing the strength of glass is the flaw population created at the edges of glass elements by cutting and polishing. The current study aims at correlating the configuration of edge flaws to the edge strength of glass. To do so, small-scale glass specimens were subjected to in-plane four-point bending tests to determine the failure strength and the failure location. Subsequently, the edge flaw conditions were studied defining the geometry factor and the depth of the edge flaws for each edge finishing, using the results from the bending tests as well as measurements made with a confocal microscope. Finally, using the flaw parameters defined, a time-dependent strength prediction is obtained for the investigated edge finishings.
