| Anisotropy is the term used in the façade industry to describe the manifestation of patterns and colourful areas in heat-treated glass under certain light and viewing conditions.
| Post breakage strength of glass is still an unknown area as analytical models for this are inconclusive so far and thus destructive testing is the only reliable solution.
| The load-bearing capacity of glass as a structural material as well as sustainability and resistance of a built-in glass against appearing loads and forces is assuming an ever-greater importance.
| Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) experiments were carried out on three different Saflex® interlayers from commercial production, all at a nominal thickness of 0.76 mm.
| The study describes the results of the principal applicability of fiber optic strain sensors to evaluate the structural behaviour of laminated glass and provides the basis to define a model for the material characteristics of viscoelastic interlayers.
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| The aim of this paper is to identify and discuss challenges with the assumption that the SSG is isolated from the glass self-weight and provide a better understanding on the complexity of SSG systems.
| The Surface Compression Stress (SC) data, collected by Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, were analysed to compare the measurements carried out by Scalp-05 (Scattered Light Polariscope) and Laser Gasp (Strainoptics’ GASP® Polarimeter).
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| In a glass tempering process, residual stresses to glass are made with heat treatment. The process includes heating and cooling, and they should be equal on both sides of the glass pane.
| In this article, the prestressing profile of chemically prestressed glass panes is investigated and two different measurement methods for recording surface compressive stress will be presented.
| Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
| The Correct Adaptation of IR Thermometers and Cameras to Different Applications
| 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.
| 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).
| In this paper local heat transfer of impinging small jets on surface heat transfer and residual stresses is studied.
| The use of laminated safety glass instead of single glass sheets is especially important in order to mitigate the risks of potential post-breakage behaviour and thus for the fixation of glass fragments in case of damage to the glass.
| Safety standards are constantly rising in all possible areas in which glass is used or installed – which is the reason why lamination is also becoming increasingly important in the glass industry.
| Glass distortions may cause objects to appear irregular and out of focus when observed through a distorted glass panel.
| Modern architecture continues to produce ever more attractive and higher quality façade constructions.
| The New Hype in Top End Architecture – an Examination of Latest Product Developments and Projects
| A couple of years ago all started with the first measurement of anisotropies and edge stress as well as the detection of White Haze and other glass imperfections right after the furnace.
| Arup are consulting engineers for a series of recent projects involving curved glass: The High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas and a revolving feature lift for the new Louis Vuitton townhouse in London.
| This blog post was written based on an interview with M.Sc. (Chem.) Santtu Jolkkonen, Sparklike's Service and Maintenance Manager, who has been working as technical support specialist for Sparklike over a decade.
