Glass Deflection formula Post your reply
Posted on: Jun-25-04 Author: k2extrem5 Contact this user  User information

Does anyone have a glass delfection formula for tempered glass over different spans. We make sneeze guards and need to find the maximum lengths and force we can put on glass with minimal deflection. Thank you for your help.

Caleb,
I would assume that you could flat plate bending formulae to determine your stress and deflection once you have the modulus of elasticity for the tempered glass (I suspect that your glass supplier or the glass manufacturer could supply this information)

the link below gives some flat plate bending formulae:

Hope this helps.
