Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays (AMLCDs) are used throughout the world in various industries while being subjected to a range of loading conditions. Extreme changes in temperature and humidity can wreck havoc on the sensitive layered structure. A slight bend or short distance impact can shatter the paper thin layer of glass, permanently damaging the structure. Due to the constantly changing LCD industry, always moving towards a smaller, faster, and clearer screen, methods need to be developed to quickly assess the life of an LCD. This study focused on characterizing the mechanical strength of an LCD assembly in comparison to a single layer of glass used in the same LCD assembly.
