Glass–GFRP hybrids: from brittle glass to ductile and high strength structural glass

Glass–GFRP hybrids: from brittle glass to ductile and high strength structural glass
Glass–GFRP hybrids: from brittle glass to ductile and high strength structural glass
This paper presents selected findings from a research programme that aimed to exploit the use of adhesively-bonded Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) laminates as a mean of improving strength and ductility of glass structural elements. In the first half of the paper, using the results of an experimental investigation of the load response and failure behaviour of annealed glass beams reinforced with GFRP laminates, it is shown that the load resistance and the ductility of the glass beams can be enhanced. In the latter half of the paper, it is shown that the stress concentration geometries and bolted joints in annealed glass can sustain greater loads with greater ductility, even after microcracks formed, if the glass is reinforced with adhesively-bonded GFRP laminates.

Abstract

This paper presents selected findings from a research programme that aimed to exploit the use of adhesively-bonded Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) laminates as a mean of improving strength and ductility of glass structural elements. In the first half of the paper, using the results of an experimental investigation of the load response and failure behaviour of annealed glass beams reinforced with GFRP laminates, it is shown that the load resistance and the ductility of the glass beams can be enhanced. In the latter half of the paper, it is shown that the stress concentration geometries and bolted joints in annealed glass can sustain greater loads with greater ductility, even after microcracks formed, if the glass is reinforced with adhesively-bonded GFRP laminates.
