| In this paper, artificial intelligence (AI) will be applied for the first time in the context of glass processing.
Experimental investigations and numerical simulations of innovative lightweight glass–plastic-composite panels
| Novel innovative glass–plastic-composite panels combining a lightweight polymer polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) interlayer core and cover layers of thin glass are currently under development.
| Overview, Case Studies and Future Potentials
| 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.
| Research has shown that the general approach to determine the bending strength of thermally curved glass with the aid of the four-point bending test for flat glass according to EN 1288-3 is applicable.
A Novel, Demountable Structural Glass System Out of Dry-Assembly, Interlocking Cast Glass Components
| Combining transparency with a high compressive strength, glass enables us to make diaphanous load-bearing compressive members, from beams and columns to free-standing facades and entire glass structures.
| Glass can form and shape a space, creating transparent architecture that can make you feel closer to the outside world.
| In 2015, the bold concept of a curvy tower at 252 East 57th Street, New York, was presented to an audience at the Glass Performance Days conference. At that time, building construction was just beginning, and no one was certain such a novel idea could be realized.
Hybrid GLAss-Steel Stele (HYGLASS): Preliminary Mechanical Study on a Smart Tetrahelical Cantilevering Tall Structure
| The project HYbrid GLAss-Steel Stele (HYGLASS) aims at the realization of a cantilevering hybrid vertical structure working as a stand-alone or a grid-connected smart tower.
| This poetry in architecture, one of the most advanced structures in the Nordic countries, Oodi Library exalts the very elements of glass, wood and steel that work in balance as a free-standing masterpiece.
| After seaming, grinding glass edges is another important work step in glass edge processing. The process is primarily used to remove overbreaks and underbreaks at the edges and to process the glass sheets to size.
| In glass edge processing, cutting the glass sheet is directly followed by the seaming process. Fully unprocessed glass edges exhibit overbreaks and underbreaks, conchoidal fractures, as well as micro-cracks along the broken edge.
| The paper illustrates the design project of the main laminated glass balustrade of a steel staircase installed in the historical Margherita Theatre in Livorno, Italy.
| In this paper, the emphasis is put on explosion resistant glazing systems.
| In glass edge processing, the requirements for the finished components can vary greatly depending on the location and purpose.
| In glass tempering, we look for equipment that uses less energy, leading to fewer emissions. But sometimes, the numbers are too good to be true.
| The significance of balancing operational and embodied carbon continues to grow.
| Global environmental concern is motivating efforts to improve energy efficiency in all industrial sectors. And glass tempering is no exception.
| Today, almost all new devices – from home appliances to production equipment – are connected. Rapid development in consumer electronics has been increasingly moving towards industrial use. In the glass industry, this development is still in its early stages.
| To really succeed in glass lamination, it takes much more than just having the best equipment – it’s about understanding the process in and out.
| The aim of this paper is to explain how the design intent of a bespoke glazed façade develops from the point of view of the façade consultant BIFF SA.
| The two case studies illustrate how the engineering of glass can fluctuate with design intent in unusual scenarios – when we cannot rely solely on conventional codes and standards to guide the analysis.
| When people talk about the future of production, they can't do so without using the term "smart factory." But what is it? How does a smart factory work? And what does it have to do with OPC UA?
| Five commercial glazing system analysis and a project study show the advantages of using Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) edges to mechanically attach glass to buildings.
