| This paper presents some of major outcomes of Finite Element (FE) numerical methods and simulations that have been explored in the framework of the GLASS-SHARD research project for glass windows and facades under explosion or soft-body impact.
| This paper presents a study on the development of a bonded edge seal for fluid-filled insulating glass units.
| In this research, the structural sealed façade structure with triple IGU was investigated and the effect of the thickness of ordinary and laminated glasses.
| 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.
| Measurement area separated from glass sheets with buffer plates
| Measurement area in direct thermal contact with specimen
| In this study, the bending process of specially-fabricated double glazing units (‘panels’) is investigated with a focus on a local instability phenomenon.
| 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.

| 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.
| Constructions at exceptional locations are often challenging but worth one’s while. Extreme boundary conditions and sophisticated demands of the client have to be considered.
| 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.

| The present work uses non-linear material laws for FEA and exhibits the behavior of the sealant joint in various load scenarios on several projects.
| 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 today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| The simulation tool provides an accurate definition of the internal pressure, deflection and stress on glass panels and forces through the sealant silicone with a reduced pre-post and calculation time, being ideal for parametric studies.
