| Originally developed for glazing in hurricane zones, SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers are significantly stiffer than standard PVBs such as Butacite®.
| 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 post-breakage behavior of glass beams is not easy to predict, therefore Octatube performed a range of tests on different glass fins varying the test setup.
| The paper presents an overview of the work completed within the on-going research project “Structural safety of glass components” carried out at the Silesian University of Technology, Lund University and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
| Thin glass offers a promising prospect for lightweight façades with reduced use of raw materials, also opening up entirely new perspectives for architectural expression.
| Sustainability and the circular economy are increasingly influencing work and production processes in glass manufacturing, too.
| Held in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 June 2021 glasstec will pick up on the latest glass trends related to shapes, formats and structures.
| Digitalisation is not only something for start-ups or major enterprises. It applies just as naturally to many skilled trade businesses.
| In this paper we will look at the potential of what is now a commonly used component in facade design - a load-bearing glass wall panel.
| The “One Single Model” approach rises as the best tool to manage complex buildings through the different engineering branches.
| We have seen rapid expansion in the last decade of laminated glass design using modern analytical and computational methods.
| Time-temperature superposition principle is widely used to generate interlayer modulus properties in the form of mastercurves for use in glass design.
| Historically, monolithic tempered glass has been primarily used in North America, but with the recent changes to the International Building Code (IBC 2015), laminates with heat strengthened or tempered glass are now required.
| This paper presents an evaluation of the use of annealed laminated glass incorporating the stiffer PVB interlayers.
| Cantilevered laminated glass balustrades supported by bearing in continuous base shoes are among the most ordinary applications of structural glass.

| This presentation offers a new perspective on limit device design and specifications especially due to construction phase and post-occupancy habits in urban environments.
| The structural sealant glazing (SSG) system was adopted in numerous skyscrapers glass facades since the mid 1980’s in Japan.
| Silicone sealants have been applied for more than 40 years to structurally bond glass onto steel or aluminium frames. One of the reasons is the unique resistance to weathering in normal assembly situations.
| Thin glass is the product of choice for electronic device displays. This glass is commonly expensive aluminosilicate glass whose properties are significantly enhanced when subjected to chemical tempering.
