This paper investigates the influence of interlayer properties on the blast performance of laminated glass (LG) panels. A parametric study is carried out by varying the thickness and Young’s modulus (E) of the interlayer under two different blast loads. Results indicate the existence of a critical interlayer thickness (or E) that causes the onset of interlayer failure. This should be achieved in the design to enhance energy absorption, reduce support reactions and initiate a safer failure mode. Present findings provide information to achieve such design targets and enable safe and efficient performance of LGs under credible blast loads.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
