| The thermal rupture behavior of the frame-supported float glass subjected to thermal loading is carefully examined using a self-built experimental system.
| In the present paper, attention is focused on the experimental and Finite Element (FE) numerical analysis of in-service LG modular units acting as pedestrian elements that are affected by partial glass fracture and ordinary walking conditions.
| Glass units are in demand in structural applications, however, the strength is challenging to predict.
| The impact of building glass breakage on personnel injury was considered in this model.
| 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.
| 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!
| 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.
| 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.
| 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.
| It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass.
| 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.
| The present paper, correlated with the Author’s speech at GPD 2019 but extending it at the same time, summarizes some of the R&D work recently published by Saint-Gobain.
| Due to the tension stiffening of the polymeric interlayer resulting from the adhesion with the glass shards, laminated glass maintains significant stiffness and strength even when all glass plies are broken.
| Glass type, coating types and locations, shading patterns and devices... there are multiple factors that can contribute to a thermal stress break.
| A new design of structural glass application is presented, based on a horizontal self-bearing and pre-stressed glass solution.
| Glass balustrades are a common application of laminated glass, wherein the glass panel acts as a structural member that is required to sustain lateral design loads as stipulated by building regulations.
| Structural, architectural and installation demands must all be considered in glass structures. The best solutions do not form a compromise between these demands but integrate them into one solution.
