Laminated safety glass for windshield applications is manufactured to improve the impact and penetration resistance against flying objects and to minimize the danger of flying glass after impact. Penetration is prevented mainly by absorbing the kinetic energy through stretching the plastic interlayer, delamination between the plastic interlayer and the two adjacent glass plates, and by fracture of the adjacent glass plates. The plastic interlayer must delaminate partially to allow EandPna Filter L Amplifbr Receiving lnnrducer Sendinn F i b !

0 MHz. 0 MHz. 6 MHz have been severely attenuated. This result is fully consistent with the attenuation curves shown in Figure 6. 4 MHz. 6 MHz using MatLab. Figure 11 shows the predicted and the experimentally measured attenuation for the SI mode for laminates with different pummel ratings. The mean was obtained by averaging ten experimental data points. The red bars show the 90% confident interval calculated using the student 't' test. 5 % for specimens with a pummel number 5. Considering the difficulties associated with measuring attenuation reliably, such as beam spreading, inconsistent coupling, non-uniform distribution of the contact area.

The pumniel test method. The imperfect interfaces between the plastic interlayer and the two adjacent glass plates were modeled using a bed of longitudinal and shear springs. The spring constants were estimated using fracture mechanics concepts in conjunction with surface analysis using atomic force microscopy. The guided wave theoretical attenuation-based predictions of adhesion levels (obtained using this multilayered model) were validated using experimental attenuation measurements. Results show that this approach is useful in the nondestructive assessment of adhesive bond strength in laminated safety glass.
