Characterization of Polymeric Interlayers in Laminated Glass Beams for Photovoltaic Applications
In this paper we present a mathematical model to describe the load-deflection behavior of laminated glass beams under three-point bending. On the basis of first order deformation shear theory and a layerwise beam formulation the maximum deflection is computed. Results of this model are compared with bending tests on different laminated glass beams.
