Research Interests

My research currently focuses on window glass design; more specifically weathered fully tempered glass lites. A major aspect of my research is performing tests on fully tempered window glass lites using ASTME997. My objective is to compare ASTM E1300 predicted load resistance of weathered tempered glass lites to experimental results and recommend a more viable methodology for predicting load resistance of weathered fully tempered glass lites. To further this research, I am deriving surface flaw parameters that are representative of the lite's failure load and probability of breakage.
