| The goal of this work is to investigate the mechanical performance of VIG’s subjected to soft body impact and gain insight into the failure mechanisms of the VIG when exposed to dynamic loads.
| This first episode is devoted to the white haze phenomenon – one of the most asked about issues in the history of #AskGlaston.
| In the present paper, optical anisotropy effects in architectural glass are evaluated using digital image processing.
| The intention of this paper is to address this gap with the aid of photoelasticity as an indirect measuring method in a coordinated way with numerical simulation based on finite element analysis.
| Industry demand for impeccable glass quality has increased notably over the last years. Customer expectations run high, forcing glass processors to strive for ever-stricter quality control and ensure minimal rejection rates for finished products.
| The most common quality issues that arise in tempered glass are roller waves, glass distortion, bad anisotropy and white haze. In this post, we want to focus on white haze and ways to control it.
| Irregularities in the glass, which are visible under certain lighting conditions and interfere with the overall impression of a pane – anisotropies – occur when glass is tempered.
| 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.
