Damage mechanism of particle impact in a plasma coated soda-lime glass Suh, Chang-Min; Lee, Moon-Hwan; Hong, Dea-Yeong;
A quantitative study of impact damage of plasma coated soda-lime glasses was carried out and compared with that of the uncoated smooth glass specimen. The shape of cracks by the impact of steel ball was observed by stereo-microscope and the decrease of the bending strength due to the impact of steel ball was measured through the 4-point bending test. At the low velocity, cone cracks were occurred. As the impact velocity increases, initial lateral cracks were propagated on the slanting surface of a cone crack, and radial cracks were generated at the crushed site. When the impact velocity of steel ball exceeds the critical velocity, the contact site of specimen was crushed due to plastic deformation and then radial and lateral cracks were largely grown. Crack length of coated specimens was smaller than that of uncoated smooth specimen due to the effect of coating layer on the substrate surface. According to impact velocity, the bending strength of coated specimens had no significant difference, compared with that of the uncoated smooth specimen. But this represents that the bending strength of coated specimens was increased, considering the effect of sand blasting damage which was performed to increase the adhesion force of coating layer.
