Zyklische Ermüdung von thermisch entspanntem und thermisch vorgespanntem Kalk-Natron-Silikatglas: Cyclic fatigue of annealed and tempered soda-lime glass ... Konstruktion im Bauwesen) (German Edition)

Im vorliegenden Band wird das Verhalten von thermisch entspanntem und thermisch vorgespanntem Kalk-Natron-Silikatglas bei schwingender Beanspruchung anhand von Dauerschwingprüfungen im Doppelring- und 3-Punkt-Biegeversuch unter verschiedenen Randbedingungen untersucht. Zudem wird überprüft, ob Kalk- Natron-Silikatglas bei periodischer Beanspruchung eine Ermüdungsschwelle aufweist und Rissheilungseffekte zwischen den einzelnen Lastzyklen auftreten.
