Strength of Glass by Flexure

Strength of Glass by Flexure


Does anyboby have the ASTM C 158 document to be shared, in order to make test of glass by flexure...?


RE: Strength of Glass by Flexure

Are you looking for ASTM C 158 or looking for general idea of glass flexure strength?

I am not too familiar with american codes, but the Germans use DIN18008, while in Canada we have CAN/CGSB 12.20 M89.
According to CAN/CGSB 12.20 M89, annealed glass generally have 20MPa base tensile strength, with reduction factors due to size & edge.
