Perfect bonding is assumed between the plastic interface and the two adjacent glass half-spaces and the bulk attenuation per wavelength is assumed to be constant. As a consequence, the model results can not be directly compared with those shown in Fibwe 6 for laminated safety glass, where these assumptions are not valid. However, Figure 5 helps explaining the periodic peaks in the attenuation curves associated with the S1 mode in multi-layered safety glass as caused by the destructive interference phenomena that occurs at the interfaces*'.

The attenuation of the SI mode for the laminates with different adhesion levels was then evaluated. 4 MHz showed relatively good agreement with the predicted values obtained from dispersion curve analysis. Laminates with higher adhesion levels were found to have corresponding higher attenuation values for the S I mode.
