The strength of window glass plates deteriorates with exposure to the environment under in-service conditions. This phenomenon is termed 'weathering. ' The strength reduction associated with weathering is significant. The results of destructive tests are presented for several sets of both new and weathered window glass plate specimens under uniform lateral pressure. An analytical and statistical procedure which considers all parameters that govern the behavior of these plates is used to determine the strengths of the sample sets.
