Freebase

  1. GLARE

    GLARE is a "Glass Laminate Aluminium Reinforced Epoxy" FML, composed of several very thin layers of metal interspersed with layers of glass-fibre "pre-preg", bonded together with a matrix such as epoxy. The uni-directional pre-preg layers may be aligned in different directions to suit the predicted stress conditions. Although GLARE is a composite material, its material properties and fabrication are very similar to bulk aluminum metal sheets. It has far less in common with composite structures when it comes to design, manufacture, inspection or maintenance. GLARE parts are constructed and repaired using mostly conventional metal material techniques. Its major advantages over conventional aluminium are: ⁕Better "damage tolerance" behaviour ⁕Better corrosion resistance ⁕Better fire resistance ⁕Lower specific weight Furthermore, it is possible to "tailor" the material during design and manufacture such that the number, type and alignment of layers can suit the local stresses and shapes throughout the aircraft. This allows the production of double-curved sections, complex integrated panels or very large sheets, for example.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Glare

    Relatively bright light, or the dazzling sensation of relatively bright light, which produces unpleasantness or discomfort, or which interferes with optimal VISION, OCULAR. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)
