This paper explains the most common types of visual distortion from the glass production process and considers a virtual prototyping approach.
Modern free form glass architecture has become increasingly popular in the structural sealant glazing application, as demonstrated by many iconic building projects, such as Allianz tower in Milan.
Investigations of different positions of the sphere and the satellite and their effect on stress distribution are studied. Both, experimental observations and computational FEM simulations are compared.
This paper will review the impact of silicones at various levels of a sustainable design.
First valid steps on the pathway to better re-utilization of glass elements
Investigation of color protection of laminated glass by UV-blocking interlayers for conservation application
In this contribution, a long-lasting natural weather testing of several glass types, mostly LSG with different interlayer materials, and the effect of the different color patterns of paper and textile specimens are presented.
This study experimentally investigated the strength behavior of toughened glass with cylindrical near-edge holes via photoelasticity and destroying four-point bending test.
Correction of factor kₑ in EN1288-3
This paper presents the initial results of a seismic study of silicone bonded glass curtain wall systems, combining both finite element analysis and experimental validation.
In this contribution, PVB interlayers for highly effective and low-surface coverage bird-friendly laminated safety glass will be described.
Within the large material class “glass”, different types have the amorphous structure as well as the time-dependent glass transformation behavior in common.
Highlights: Thermal model for curtain wall metal frames. Validated with two experimental data sets. Effect of thermal protection.
Comparisons with Prony series approach.
In this paper, the Sandwich Theory of effective thickness is applied to the evaluation of multilaminate glass fin stability for in-plane flexure.
Retrofitting of additional functions in the building cover through the use of mobile laser technology
For the first time, a "laser upgrade" for façades, balustrades and windows in their installed state is possible by using mobile laser technology.
In this study, the profound reasons behind the main benefits of glass preheating by increased convection in automotive windshields (WS)/ sunroof (SR) production are opened.
This paper investigates the influence of Possion´s Effect on the accuracy and applicability of the used linear elastic Euler-Bernoulli beam theory for the determination of the tensile bending strength of thin glass.
Wide-span glass roofs are becoming increasingly popular as they provide transparent roofing for atriums or entrance areas. Most often, IGU`s (Insulating glass units) are used.
Requirements, Implications, and Case Studies in the USA
The project is a facade to access an office building.
Crystal Gallery, Mayfair, London.
Octatube delivered this roof in March 2021.
The present work presents the investigation of historical glass and glass constructions in a suburb of Dresden.
Laminating glass together with a PVB or ionoplast interlayer can help mitigate security threats that range from smash and grab burglary, forced entry, ballistics, to even bomb blast.
A novel approach to generate a flat plate with enhanced stiffness has been identified. This approach is scalable, offering the potential for improved stiffness for both large-format glass and thin, chemically tempered glass.
With increasing concern over plant conservation, there has been a renewed interest in large-scale, enclosed botanical garden structures.
