We maintain field deployable high speed data and image acquisition capabilities at our Austin location. Much of our specialty routines are written in National Instrument?s LabVIEW software. We also have laboratory scale fabrication and machining capabilities. Much of that capability was originally developed to support our water tank based glass test facility located in Austin. In that ‘tank,’ we are able to perform glass fracture tests of various glass and plastic, including large deformation interlayer and polymer or PET retrofit tests. Much of the work done at the glass test facility has supported the incorporation of the Glass Failure Prediction Model, a statistical glass fracture model much better at handling size and rate effects, into new versions of SBEDS.
