| Theoretical Study on a Highly Transparent Building Made with Long-Spanned TVT Portals Braced with Hybrid Glass-Steel Panels
| Do you still spend precious time doing the meticulous task of manually counting glass cullets for a glass fragmentation test? Or maybe your modern counting tool is not exactly the gold standard? If so, we have some good news for you!
| Unitised Façade System Designed with a Highly Transparent Façade of Low G-value Combined with Blast Requirements
| For years and years research, development and discussions have been made on the safety of glass structures.
| Building code requirements for wind-borne debris protection have been in existence since the mid- 1990s, and as a result, many glazing systems have been tested and certified to these performance requirements.
| For nearly 50 years, glass has been used as structural elements in glass fin applications. These applications include interior and exterior projects, supporting facades, canopies, storefronts, curtain walls and skylights.
| 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 present paper presents an ongoing research project considering the failure of glass at high strain-rates. It provides a brief review of existing studies showing a strength increase with loading rates relevant for e.g. blast loads.
| In this work, a combined Voronoi and finite-discrete element method (FDEM) approach for reconstructing the post-fracture model of laminated glass (LG) was proposed.
| Glass surfaces can be pre-treated so that they do not offer bacteria and viruses a chance to survive and do not aggregate layers of dirt.
| 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.
| This study forms part of a wider research programme that aims to better address the end-of-life challenges and opportunities in façade design for re-use.
| This paper presents the experimental results of a three-point bending test conducted on laminated glass at elevated temperature in an environmental chamber.
| The determination of interlayer modulus data is complex.
| Here, comparisons are made with numerical analyses, performed by implementing an ad hoc routine in the software Straus7, developed by Maffeis Engineering.
| The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
| Renzo Piano Building Workshop designed a 290,000 sf museum celebrating the artistry and technology of film, becoming the world’s first museum and event space devoted to the Motion Picture.
| 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.
| High-performance interlayers add to the stability, design flexibility, and adaptability of architectural glass
| From domed skylights to curved handrails, revolving door enclosures to building enclosures, the dramatic curves of bent glass offer architectural form and function.
| The main goal of all fire-rated glass is to compartmentalize fire to enable safe exit. It is most commonly used around egress areas, property line walls, stairwells, and points of exit.
| Glaston is working hard to make tempering furnaces more automated.
| Held in Düsseldorf from 15 to 18 June 2021 glasstec will pick up on the latest glass trends related to shapes, formats and structures.
