| In the structural design of facade glazing, various types of loads such as dead weight, wind and climatic loads must be taken into account. In practice, however, there are many cases of damage that can be attributed to direct solar radiation.
| The main challenge in the design of the duplex façade was the high aesthetical performance that the façade had to meet.
| In this study, the bending process of specially-fabricated double glazing units (‘panels’) is investigated with a focus on a local instability phenomenon.
| In recent years, there has been a significant progress demonstrated in both the R&D and industrialisation of novel BIPV products, materials, and also the window-integrated PV (WIPV) solar window systems.
| In this paper, we present the development of an intrinsic parameter σQM characterizing the sensitivity of a coating (or configuration) to the quench marks.
| This paper presents work undergone for a set of four high-rise towers, featuring 11,136 unique cold-bentpanels, hundreds of which are pushed beyond 250mm.
| The paper presents the results of FEM analysis as well as tests performed on double glazed units including Sikasil® IG-25 secondary sealing joints and SikaGlaze® IG-5 PIB as primary seal.
| This paper sheds some light on the challenges to build with high performing glazing façade systems (originally called curtain wall systems) while efficiently utilising resources and reducing its manufacturing embodied carbon.
| 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 paper discusses the structural response of cable-supported glass façades, through time history finite element (FE) analyses, under different wind action combinations.
| Ground rules emerging from built case studies on adhesive selection and experimental validation.
| The economy globalizes. The industries concentrate. The productions become uniform. Cultural specificities disappear. About architecture and glass in architecture, it is the same phenomenon.
| Dow has a strong commitment to sustainability and recently introduced the first externally PAS2060-verified carbon neutral silicones for façades.
| Industrial manufacture of solar building components and their integration into the building planning process
| Eurocode-compliant, mesh-independent approach using the FEM
| Overview, Case Studies and Future Potentials
| Thin glass offers the possibility for lightweight and flexible glass façades that could change shape depending on external conditions.
| Can you name all types of dynamic glazing that are available in today’s market? Are you aware of their particular specifications and strengths? Don’t worry even if you can’t. 
| 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. 
| In this paper, the emphasis is put on explosion resistant glazing systems.
| Making new and existing buildings as energy efficient as possible is one way to help meet the EU’s CO2 reduction goals.
| Interview with Émilie Develle, technical advisor, Guardian Glass Europe.
| 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.
| To create spectacular Tampa Bay views from inside the museum, Novum Structures used hurricane-resistant safety glazing.
| I want you to think about your daily journey to work. Take a minute, visualize it – and then answer me this: How many glass surfaces did you see? Too many to remember?
