Simulation of Laminated Glass Loaded by Air Blast Waves
In this paper, several material models are analyzed in order to represent and compare the behaviour of laminated glass subjected to blast loads. LS-DYNA and EUROPLEXUS are used for numerical simulation. These codes have different capabilities to describe the mechanical problem, especially the failure behaviour. The results of the simulations are compared to laboratory experimental results in order to validate the accuracy of the material models.
