A description is given of an electromechanical resonance apparatus for fatigue testing glass-laminate specimens in alternating cantilever bending at a frequency of 20 Hz in the heavy-duty loading regime. The apparatus creates dynamic strains in the specimen with amplitudes up to 0.8% and also measures and records the resonant frequency (period) of the vibrations, which is taken as a characteristic of mechanical damage accumulation in the specimen.
