Present results for experiments involving conventional faade materials glass, concrete, and masonry that have been overloaded to generate debris data at the structural and material levels. The material level samples have been loaded at high pressures using a small diameter shock tube to generate fragmentation at high strain rates. The structural level experiments include full-scale wall components and windows that have been overloaded in a large diameter shock tube at lower strain rates in order to generate structural level fragmentation.
