    Choosing a Tolleson Auto Glass Company

    Tolleson is roughly 1,014 feet above sea level and spans around 5.56 square miles. The average annual temperature range in Tolleson, Arizona varies from lows of around 40 degrees Fahrenheit to highs over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Drastic temperature fluctuations occurring on a daily basis put a lot of strain on vehicle auto glass including side windows, quarter windows, vent windows, back windows and particularly windshields. That makes it so very important for local auto glass repair and windshield replacement companies to understand how this situation can affect a vehicle's integrity. It is in your best interest to choose a local auto glass repair and windshield replacement company with knowledge about the glass best suited for the local environment.

    Auto Glass in Tolleson, Arizona

    Originally, there was not much demand for auto glass in Tolleson, Arizona. An increasing number of vehicles on the road combined with the rough and rocky landscape of Tolleson, Arizona has led to a lot of cracked, chipped and broken windshields. The good news is, Arizona is a "no-fault-claim" state, which means that placing an auto glass repair or windshield replacement claim will not directly affect your insurance rates. That is one less thing to worry about when choosing a professional auto glass company.

    Windshield Crack Physics

    In fracture mechanics, an important factor is fracture energy. Fracture energy is the measure of the amount of energy it takes to form a crack.The fracture energy is relevant to the surface energy of the material that the object hits; this is because a crack creates a new surface. Typically, researchers assume that cracks form when fracture energy is less than the corresponding elastic energy. In other words, when cracking requires less energy than bending, the material will crack.

    Researchers understand what causes cracks; however, “few studies have asked the question, ‘what does the cracking pattern tell us?’” says Nicolas Vandenberghe of the Aix-Marseille University in Marseille, France. Vandenberghe and his colleagues recently studied perforations in aluminum foil; they found that the number of tears or cracks showed consistent behavior and they were able to create a theoretical module. They have used this to mimic and study the effect of rocks hitting a windshield.

    To analyze their theory, they took plates of glass and plexiglass of varying thickness and fired a metal rod from an air gun at the plates of glass and plexiglass. The team used a high-speed camera to track crack initiation and development.

    They found that the number of cracks was exactly proportional to the square root of the impact speed. That means that a vehicle traveling 80 miles per hour would have twice the cracks of a vehicle traveling 40 miles per hour.

    This research allowed the team to develop a formula for the total energy in a sheet that includes both the fracture and bending energies. This research is helpful for more than just the windshield industry. This equation could help forensic investigators piece together details in accidents and crimes.

    Jan Åström of the Finnish Information Technology Center for Science (CSC) in Esbo stated that he believes the research contributes to continued efforts to identify the fundamental aspects of fracture and fragmentation.

    Windshield Acoustics

    Photo: my vehicle watch dog

    It is distracting to hear the wind whistle into the passenger compartment of a vehicle while driving. Because of this, and the fact that a quiet ride can increase the vehicle’s value and desirability, it is something to keep in mind when deciding whether to replace a noisy windshield. Rushing air hits the windshield the hardest so it is the best place to begin when addressing a noise issue. The newer acoustic windshields can help you in obtaining a quiet and enjoyable ride.

    As more automobiles use speech recognition to activate various devices, such as a GPS, a quiet ride becomes more important. The background noise that rushing air creates while driving with a windshield seal that is compromised, can distort any information a driver attempts to convey to these devices.

    There are three sources that create the excess noise in older vehicles; the noise generated by fluctuations in aerodynamic pressure around the windshield and the vehicle’s frame; the noise generated by tires rolling against the road’s surface; and the noise and vibration that generates when another vehicle passes close to our own. 

    Photo: phone dog

    Since the windshield has no protection from the wind, it takes the full impact. If there are any leaks in the seal between the windshield and the pinchweld, (the frame in which your windshield is adhered) it will be noticeable, especially at higher speeds.

    Many of us have experienced frustration when we have held conversations with someone who is using a hands-free cell phone while driving. “What! Can you repeat that! Would you repeat that again!” The good news is we can replace the windshield and molding to the same quality as they were when the vehicle was manufactured.
