Acousto-ultrasonic (AU) non-destructive evaluation of windshield laminated safety glass has been conducted to evaluate the adhesive bond strength between the plastic interlayer and the adjacent glass plates using the stress-wave-factor (SWF) approach. Safety glass laminates with different levels of adhesive bond strength were manufactured and tested using the stress-wave-factor measurement technique. The adhesive bond strength of the glass laminates was then evaluated using the commonly used destructive test method, ie, the pummel test method. It was observed that higher values of the SWF measurements correspond to higher values of the pummel test data. Therefore, these results show that the acousto-ultrasonic approach has the potential of being used in quality assurance of windshield laminated safety glass.
