Fractal Analysis of Fragmentation Patterns of Glass Plates

Abstract:

Article Preview

In the present work, the statistics of fragmentation is being studied in experiments with thin glass plates under uniformly distributed quasi-static loads. For this purpose the original pneumatic setup was manufactured. The glass plate is placed into a "sandwich" in order to fix the fragmentation pattern after unloading and to photograph it by a digital camera. A photoimaging and computer processing technique are used to assess the fragment areas and the total crack length.
