A poster from a project funded by the Institution's 2015/16 MSc Research Grants.

The main aim of the project was to investigate experimentally and using a finite element model the effectiveness of using bonded glass-fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) strips to strengthen joints in glass.

Summary:

Some of the objectives were: to develop a procedure for testing glass in tension; study the influence of GFRP reinforcement on ultimate load and ductility of glass samples; and to create a finite element model to predict stress in reinforced and control glass samples.

The hypotheses of the research were:

  1. GFRP reinforcement increases theultimate breaking load of glasssamples
  2. The increasein the ultimatebreaking stressof glass samplesprovided by GFRPisproportional tothe area of the reinforcement
