| Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
| Over the past few years London has enjoyed a building boom seeing a large number of developments particularly in the residential and commercial office sectors.
| When I first met Sophie Pennetier, I was struck by her expressed influences and her remarkable experiential pedigree. She cites Peter Rice’s brilliant book, An Engineer Imagines, as the inspiration for her engineering pursuits.
| Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
| The integration of smart glazing and adaptive façade in buildings can lead to large performance improvements and added functionality compared to conventional static building envelope systems.
| The performance of the glazed sections of the facade is essential for providing the maximum possible comfort for the building occupants, while minimizing the energy and resource demands of the building.
| The Correct Adaptation of IR Thermometers and Cameras to Different Applications
| Glass type, coating types and locations, shading patterns and devices... there are multiple factors that can contribute to a thermal stress break.
| Recently, the uniform load resistance of enamel coated glass plates has become a topic of interest with respect to proposed changes to ASTM E1300.
| Today, when energy efficiency is more important than ever, it’s a good time to speak about insulating glass spacers.
| As a manufacturer and supplier of monolithic, laminated and insulated glass panels, we often produce larger panels that must use heat-treated components, ionoplast interlayers and multi-layer assemblies.
| This paper demonstrates the feasibility of training machine learning algorithms on structural data and their potential application as a predictive tool in early stage design work.
| Laminated glass deteriorates with time when subject to different environmental conditions. In this work, the impact of different environmental conditions on post-fracture performance is investigated by means of through-crack tensile tests on small…
| A new design of structural glass application is presented, based on a horizontal self-bearing and pre-stressed glass solution.
| Façade transparency is becoming an increasingly significant design factor for both client and architect, which has aesthetic and comfort implications.
| Architectural preferences for commercial building continue towards increased transparency resulting in large lites of glass with minimal visual obstruction.
| In the last years contentions about anisotropies among customers and manufacturers occurred when using glass products, such as heat-strengthened (HS) or fully tempered glass (FT).
| Strong, resilient, with perfect thermal and sound insulation properties, insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction.
| In this paper local heat transfer of impinging small jets on surface heat transfer and residual stresses is studied.
| Data-based business models are also becoming increasingly relevant to the glass industry.
