The tightness of the gap in insulating glass units is a necessary factor to maintain good thermal insulation of transparent glazing.
Most Common Defects on Laminated Glass during installation and root-causes.
This paper focuses on the fire safety aspects related to the use of fire PV panels and systems in building facades.

In this paper we present a novel test methodology for the generation of varying degrees of pre-damage in small soda-lime glass cylinders by dynamic loading in combination with a subsequent contactless damage quantification.
This paper focuses on the load-carrying behaviour of laminated glass panel supported merely along four edges subjected to compressive force.
A study was made of the impact resistance of annealed, heat-strengthened, and fully tempered laminated glass using test panels.
Explosion events represent an extraordinary action for buildings and especially for the building envelope.
This paper examines various ways of combining paper and glass as a laminate and the effects on transparency.
Laminated glass recycling is becoming increasingly important and urgent due to limited raw materials.
Dow has a strong commitment to sustainability and recently introduced the first externally PAS2060-verified carbon neutral silicones for façades.
The trend in modern architecture towards a steady optimisation of building envelopes is continuing. Beside its function as a design element, a façade also contributes to the building’s energy balance.
Glass is reflective in large angles of incidence. Using this property for the detection of shapes is the basic goal of the research.
The present research study explores the seismic performance of single laminated glass panels with various point fixing solutions.
The paper deals with the recycling of laminated glass, especially with the effective separation of glass (in the form of cullet) from the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer film.
End-of-life insulating glass units (IGUs) continue to follow a linear, wasteful path from renovation and demolition sites into landfills or low-value recycling.
​This paper offers an in-depth exploration of EVA-based encapsulants, which are widely used in the photovoltaic industry but also have potential for specific architectural glass applications.
Within ongoing research at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague, a set of real-scale insulating glass panels with embedded laminated point connections was tested.
In the present work, subcritical crack growth in soda–lime silicate glass is investigated under different environmental conditions.
This paper examines the visual performance of building facades that utilize windows with different photochromic-coated glass.
Glass units are in demand in structural applications, however, the strength is challenging to predict.
In this study, double-laminated glass plates are impacted by 7.62 mm armour piercing (AP) bullets, and their ballistic limit velocity and curve are determined both through experimental tests and numerical simulations.
In the paper, strategies for reduced order modeling of glass panels subjected to soft-body impact are developed by means of dynamic substructuring.

In this paper, failure mechanisms are identified for a post-tensioned glass beam system with a flat stainless steel tendon adhesively bonded at the bottom glass edge.
This text provides an overview of the PhotoVoltaic lamination process. It examines the differences between various types of laminators, and outlines the process flow for each. It also provides an example of a typical cycle time for EVA/POE lamination.
